Congratulatory Message from the Leader of the Opposition

Australians celebrating a significant birthday or wedding anniversary are also eligible to receive a congratulatory message from the Leader of the Opposition.

 

How can I arrange a congratulatory message?

 

Congratulatory messages can be requested through my office by:

 

  • Sending an email to [email protected]
  • Visiting the electorate office between 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, at 221 London Circuit Canberra City, ACT 2601
  • Calling the electorate office on 02 6247 8475 

 

To assist my office with processing your request, you will need to provide formal documentation such as a marriage or birth certificate so that the date of the occasion can be verified. If you are unable to provide these documents, you can provide a statutory declaration.

 

Please note that requests for congratulatory messages can be lodged up to two months before the celebration. Belated messages may be requested up to one month after the birthday or wedding anniversary has passed.

 

Where will the message be delivered?

Requests can be made for the congratulatory messages to be posted directly to the recipient’s home or postal address or in the case of a surprise message, to a care-of address to a friend or relative of the message recipients.
