The Australia Day Council has announced our Australia Day Ambassador. Scott McGregor will give the 2019 Australia Day address at the Lithgow Australia Day Ceremony in Queen Elizabeth Park. He will also visit other major centres in the Lithgow LGA on Australia Day.

Join Australia Day Ambassador Scott McGregor as the Lithgow region comes together to celebrate our national day.  Australia Day Ambassadors generously volunteer their time and share their Australian story at hundreds of community events across the country on Australia Day.  We all have different stories to share about this country and Australia Day is an opportunity to remember how fortunate we are to live, together, here in Australia.

McGregor will give the Australia Day address at the Lithgow ceremony in Queen Elizabeth Park.  He will also speak at the Wallerawang and Portland celebrations.

“I’m looking forward to our traditional Australia Day ceremony and excited to be welcoming new citizens and Scott McGregor to the region.  Australia Day is an important part of Lithgow Council’s calendar.  We will be celebrating community achievement with the annual Citizenship and Sports Awards” said Lithgow City Council Mayor Ray Thompson.

Scott McGregor is a well-known face from 30 years of work as an actor, presenter and producer in projects ranging from TV home makeovers to railway adventures. His numerous other enterprises include Tourism, Food, Home Renovations and Antiques and Collectables.

He is a regular MC, speaker and host citing the Local Government and Shires Association, The Rail Tram and Bus Union, Northern Rivers Tourism and The Australia Day Council as some of his clients. Recently he has hosted a series of TV programs on the History Channel including The Stamp Of Australia and Australian Icon Towns but is best known for his DIY expertise and mad antics on Better Homes and Gardens and as the host of the hugely popular Room For Improvement .

He has also presented two series of his own Railway Adventure programs screened here and overseas and was a regular face on the Lifestyle Channel as the Antiques and Collectables expert and travel guy.

He has just released his second book for Allen & Unwin titled Big Boys Toys, and was a regular contributor to the Sun Herald for many years. Every year he hosts a series of culture and history tours for the Powerhouse and Queensland museums to destinations as far and wide as Russia, Vietnam, India and North Queensland.

Scott trained as an actor at NIDA and since 1979 has featured in scores of TV series, films, stage plays and musicals. He cites starring roles in the ABC’s epic mini-series 1915 and the Coral Island and stage shows Bouncers and the Promise as some of his acting career highlights.
