Batonbearers are everyday Australians who inspire others to be great. Being a Batonbearer is a unique experience and is also an opportunity to be involved in the largest event to be staged in Australia in a decade.
Selected through a community nomination program, the Batonbearers recognise the achievements and aspirations of Australians from all walks of life.
