“30th Anniversary Annual Awards & Induction Gala Dinner”

Renowned as Australia’s most prestigious sporting award ceremony, the Sport Australia Hall of Fame will host the “30th Anniversary Annual Induction & Awards Gala Dinner” in Melbourne on Thursday 9th October at the Palladium at Crown

Proudly presented by Etihad Airways, major sponsor of the Sport Australia Hall of Fame, this gala dinner brings together the who’s who of Australian sporting royalty, together with Captains of sport, industry and federal and state Government representatives.

Awards on the evening will include;

  • “Induction” of eight new Australian sporting greats into the Sport Australia Hall of Fame
  • Elevation of one Member to become the “36 legend of Australian sport” status
  • Presentation of “The Don” Award, named after inaugural inductee and “legend” Sir Donald Bradman for 2014’s most inspirational performance
  • Recognition of “The Great Sporting Moments” & “Team Sport Australia” Awards
  • Presentation to the five recipients of the annual “Scholarship & Mentoring Program”

The Sport Australia Hall of Fame chairman John Bertrand AM, and the 2013 “legend of Australian sport” recipient, said the night is a great celebration of Australian sporting achievement.

“These awards represent the highest national sporting honours that can be bestowed upon an individual or team, and this year, our 30th edition, will showcase the quality of the Inductees and Australian sporting achievement over the years,” Bertrand said.

“Importantly, the night is about celebrating past achievement, but also looking forward to inspire and excite the next generation of Australians. Young children can look at world beaters like Adam Scott, Sally Pearson and Anna Meares and believe that could be them one day,” continued Bertrand.

The Gala Awards Dinner is a must attend event and presents a premiere sport and business networking opportunity whilst reflecting and celebrating Australia’s most magnificent sporting achievements; past and present.

With capacity audiences in both 2012 and 2013 we strongly encourage you to book early to not miss out on joining sport’s “Night of Nights”.
