Awards

Manningham Australia Day Perpetual Trophy

The Australia Day Perpetual Trophy was presented to the City of Manningham by the Victorian Australia Day Committee in 2000. The City of Manningham then delegated the task of selecting a group which demonstrated character traits worthy of such an award to the Manningham Promoting Character Committee.

In past years recipients have included the CFA, SES, Special Kids Basketball Group and the Rotary Club of Doncaster Sunrise, to name a few. Another worthy recipient will be announced on Australia Day 2019.

The awardee of the 2017 - 2018 Manningham Australia Day Trophy was Warrandyte Riverside Market Committee of Management.
