Historical information
In 2005 Dr Joe Toscano was instrumental in establishing the Eureka Australia Day Medal. Since then over 70 Australians whose life reflects the sentiments outlined in the Eureka oath – “We swear by the Southern Cross to stand truly by each other and fight to defend our rights and liberties”, whose name would NEVER appear in the traditional honours list have been acknowledged for the work they have done to improve the lives of people in our community.
