The search for Australia's greatest mate


What if, for just one day a year, we set all our differences aside and focused on doing one thing - being a great mate to the people with whom we share this country?
Mate Day (May 8) is that day. 

We want to use this day to highlight the kind of mates that make our lives better. In big ways and small. 
Let's mate Australia great again!




Mate Day falls on a workday. Unfortunately, Australia has used its lifetime quota of public holidays so we are going to have to make do with what we have. But don’t let this get you down. Being a good mate is a 365 day a year job. It’s never too late to be a great mate. All you have to do is be a good person to someone today or nominate a mate who has been good to you.




We’re on the hunt for Australia’s greatest mate, but we can’t do it without your help. Let us know who deserves the title and nom-a-mate them for this prestigious award.

It could be Davo who gave you a lift that one time when you needed it, or mates you have read about who are on a path to changing the world, supporting communities or taking a stand for something that matters. We wanna find the best mate this country has to offer.
