Eureka Australia Medal - Nominations Open!

Since 2005 the Reclaim the Radical Spirit of the Eureka Rebellion Celebrations Committee has awarded six Eureka Australia Medals (EAM) at Bakery Hill, Ballarat (the site where the Eureka Oath was taken) on Eureka Day, 3rd December.

The EAM is awarded to people living in Australia who have lived lives that reflect the sentiments expressed in the Eureka Oath which was sworn by miners and their supporters at Bakery Hill, Ballarat on the 29th November 1854 –

“We swear by the Southern Cross to stand truly by each other and fight to defend our rights and liberties”.

It’s time those people (both living and deceased) whose actions have improved the lives of Australians and have been instrumental in changing this society for the better, are recognised.

If you know somebody who should be recognised, not just those people who are well known, please contact me via either

Post PO Box 20 Parkville, VIC 3052

with the following details:
The person’s name
A few sentences on why they should receive the EAM
A contact address for the person you have nominated
Nominations close Sunday 10th November 2019.

See you in Ballarat on Tuesday 3rd December 2019 to celebrate the 165th Anniversary of the Eureka Rebellion.

All the very best,
Dr. Joseph Toscano / Convenor Reclaim the Radical Spirit of the Eureka Rebellion Celebrations
