Australian Geographic Society Awards 2015 winners
The winners have been announced for this year's awards for achievement, adventure and conservation.
THE ANNUAL AG Society Gala Awards will take place on 28 October at Doltone House in Sydney, hosted by Catriona Rowntree.
As we kick off AG’s 30th birthday celebrations in style, we honour Australia’s best in the fields of conservation and adventure. From a businessman who donated more than $5 million to environmental causes, to the persuasive crusader who convinced his town to shun commercially bottled water, this year’s awardees are all examples of how making a difference is a partpersonal, part-public journey.
We are inspired by the achievements of all our worthy winners and continue to be awed by Jessica Watson, our special guest speaker on the night. Jessica’s 2010 solo sail around the world at the age of 16 stands as one of the great feats of Australian adventure and we were thrilled that she was able to share her journey with us all so vividly.
