Recognition Awards

We appreciate the army of people caring for and managing Crown reserves, and acknowledge their work and commitment through awards and long service recognition.

Regional Achievement and Community Awards

The annual Regional Achievement and Community Awards (RACA) acknowledge and reward the valuable contributions individuals, communities and businesses are making throughout regional and rural NSW.

Two awards are dedicated to excellence in the management of Crown reserves:

  • Crown Land Manager Excellence Award
  • Individual Excellence in Crown Land Management Award

Nominations for the 2019 awards program are now closed. Winners will be announced in November 2019.

Information on the 2020 awards program will be available in early 2020.

Long service

We value the contribution of our individual volunteer board members. To recognise and appreciate the members who have served, the department recognises this contribution through the Service Recognition Awards.

Members will be eligible for these awards if they have 10 years of continuous service with one board. These awards will be automatically generated twice a year. Members who have 10 years of service across multiple boards may also be considered. Nominations and enquiries for these members should be directed to the department.

Your local office will contact your board to inform you of nominated members due to be issued with awards.
