Hunters Hill has welcomed its newest citizens at a ceremony today, 17 September, as part of Australian Citizenship Day 2022.

The conferees from Slovakia, South Africa, India, Colombia and the United Kingdom became Australian citizens as part of a ceremony at Hunters Hill Town Hall.

“I feel elated,” said conferee Nidhi, who is now officially Indian-Australian. “It’s been 16 years in the process – I’m really happy!”

Roelof, a conferee from South Africa, re-affirmed this sentiment.

“I have such a great sense of belonging. Just such a lovely ceremony,” said Roelof.

Mayor Zac Miles was pleased with the enthusiasm with which the conferees and their friends and family showed.

“It is a proud and joyous moment for our Council to officially recognise our new Australian citizens,” said Clr Miles.

“On behalf of all Australians, I offer you my best wishes as you share in our country’s future.”

Federal Member for North Sydney Kylea Tink joined the ceremony to read the official message from Immigration Minister Andrew Giles, after sharing her own well wishes with the conferees.
