The ceremony and ball highlights the contributions Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders have made to enhance their communities.

Minister for Indigenous Australians, Linda Burney, addressed the event, assuring the community a treaty between the Federal Government and First Nations people will happen.

Former tennis champion Ash Barty was named Person of the Year, and because she is currently overseas, her father accepted the award on her behalf.
