Ararat will once again host an Australia Day Ambassador as part of the Australia Day Celebrations to be held at the Alexandra Gardens from 8am on Tuesday 26 January, 2016.

This year the ambassador is Mr Don Hyde AM.

Don has a career in marketing, advertising, publishing and the mass media and for almost forty years was an AFL/VFL football commentator on radio and television.

In 2006 he was inducted into the MCG Media Hall of Fame and in 2007 was awarded Life Membership of the Australian Football Media Association.

He was chairman of the Australia Day Committee in Victoria from 1992 to 1999 and a board member of the National Australia Day Council. He is also a member of the Rotary Club of Melbourne and in 2008 he was named a Paul Harris Fellow by the Rotary Foundation of Rotary International.

It is a great pleasure to have Mr Don Hyde attend Ararat’s Australia Day Celebrations.
