Hundreds of Australians are being recognised for their efforts, as part of the Queens Birthday Honours.

Among those honoured are various health professionals who advised Australia’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic – including Dr Brendan Murphy, Dr Kerry Chant, and Dr Jeannette Young.

Former Deputy Prime Minister John Anderson is being recognised for his work in the agricultural sector.

“I’ve always had a very long term interest in food security, and feeding the world’s hungry,” said Mr Anderson.

“I particularly appreciate it because, it’s something I have to say I share with a lot of extraordinary Australian organisations and people in them – that I’ve been able to just draw alongside and hopefully lend a helping hand to, in areas as diverse as education, economic development and agricultural research.”

The late Shane Warne is among the sportspeople being recognised.

The “Spin King” has been posthumously appointed an Officer of the Order of Australia for distinguished service to cricket, for being a role model, and for his charitable initiatives and philanthropic contributions.

Tennis champion Ash Barty, and cricketer Meg Lanning are also being honoured.

Other big names on the list include Adam Scott, Donna Hay and Doug Walters.
