The Order of Australia, instituted by Her Majesty the Queen on 14 February 1975, was established as an Australian society of honour for the purposes of according recognition to Australian citizens and other persons for achievement or for meritorious services.  

The Order of Australia Association is comprised of recipients of awards in the Order. The association aims to:

  • Foster love of and pride in Australian citizenship,
  • to encourage awarness in the Australian community of Australia's history, traditions and culture and
  • to promote the development and maintenance of a constructive and positive sense of national unity amoung Australians.

On the final day of each voyage, the Order of Australia Association Young Endeavour Award was presented to a young crew member in recognition of their committment to the pursuit of excellence during their voyage on the Young Endeavour.

Recipients are selected based on their capacity to embody the spirit of Young Endeavour, demonstrated by giving considerable effort, regardless of success or failure showing a spirit of friendship and supporting team members in striving to achieve personal goals through challenging times and conditions.

The award is significant and unique to the Young Endeavour Youth Scheme and is sponsored by the Order of Australian Association NSW Branch. We would like to thank the members of the NSW branch of the Association for their contribution to the Scheme and congratulate all the awardees.

Below is a list of the recipients of the medallion from 1992 to 2019, when the provision of the Award by the Association came to an end.
