2014 Australia Day Honours

Many Australians were acknowledged for their contributions to the community in this year’s Australia Day honours. Professor Kate Warner and Peter Campbell were two of the Tasmanians who received an Order of Australia award for years of dedication to the state and country.

Professor Warner, who was made a Member of the Order (AM), has been responsible for significant law reform in the areas of sexual offenses, including changing the definition of rape. Peter, who received a Medal of the Order (OAM), has witnessed and reported some of the most memorable moments in yachting history through his work as a sports journalist.
