Summary The story that had the world holding their breath. One impossible rescue mission. Two ordinary Australians.

2019 Australian of the Year Luncheon

2019 Australian of the Year Dual Recipients, Dr Richard “Harry” Harris SC OAM and Dr Craig Challen SC OAM will be the speakers at the 2019 Australian of the Year Luncheon

Richard and Craig were a part of the incredible cave diving team who rescued the Thai soccer players from the flooded cave system against almost impossible odds in 2018. Hear them as they explore how values of fair go and tenacity, courage and resilience lead to success against all odds. 

The Australian of the Year Luncheon showcases a sensational line up of speakers and performers which gives attendees the opportunity to enjoy lunch and make meaningful connections with a variety of business and community leaders whilst showing your support of the importance of recognising Australia’s national identity.
