About Us

The inaugural Great Australians Gala Dinner held in 2014 was an outstanding success. This year the event returns to Melbourne and will again see a host of Great Australian icons gather together for one amazing evening.

Our Great Australians are an inspiration and send a message of hope for people in need. Through this event we seek to highlight that any Australian can achieve greatness if given the chance and to provide an opportunity to celebrate the Great Australian within us all.

Guests will have the honour of a Great Australian joining them at their table for an evening of fine dining, conversation and entertainment from some of Australia’s music legends..

Charitable Partner 2017

The Great Australians Gala Dinner aims to raise funds for “Growing Hope” an initiative of Jesuit Social Services.

Jesuit Social Services works with some of the most disadvantaged young people in the nation. Many have suffered family violence, abuse, neglect and homelessness – often leading to mental illness, self-harm, drug/alcohol abuse and, in extreme cases, suicide or attempted suicide.

Through counselling, community connection and practical programs that deliver employment and life skills, helping young people get back on track and find direction in their lives.

Your commitment to the Great Australians Gala Dinner will ensure that Growing Hope is able to continue its valuable work.
