The Australian of the Year Award has been given annually on Australia Day since 1960. The announcement of the award has become a major public event in Australia, and is televised nationwide. The award "offers an insight into Australian identity, reflecting the nation's evolving relationship with world, the role of sport in Australian culture, the impact of multiculturalism, and the special status of Australia's Indigenous people". The inaugural Australian of the Year was Sir Frank Macfarlane Burnet OM AK KBE (1899 - 1985) .
