Kiama Council is updating our Honour Rolls Policy (2013) to ensure the assessment for inclusion on our honour rolls is fair and collaborative.

The objectives of the policy are to:

(a) Provide a process for honouring outstanding achievements by residents of the Kiama Municipality

(b) Provide an equitable system for determining who shall be acknowledged

Council’s current honour rolls are:

Arts Honour Roll

Honours individual artists of all genres who contribute to the Municipality and excel within their chosen field, forming an important part of the cultural arts tapestry of our municipality.

Sports Honour Roll

Honours residents who have made an exceptional contribution to sport at a national or international level, either as a participant, coach or administrator as well as successful teams.

Australian Honour Roll

Any resident of the Kiama Municipality who receives an Australian Honour or Award from the Governor-General recognising outstanding service and contribution. Council has no part in awarding these honours.

Gordon Grellman Wall of Remembrance

Council maintains, in conjunction with the local RSL sub-branches, the Gordon Grellman Wall of Remembrance in Terralong Street which honours deceased ex-service men and women from the local government area. Council has no part in assessing these applications.

Council has developed a Draft Honour Rolls Policy (2023) in consultation with key stakeholders such as the Kiama Jamberoo RSL Sub-Branch, Kiama District Sports Association and Council’s Cultural and Community Development Officer.
