AGS Awards Honour Australia’s Best in Adventure and Conservation 

The Australian Geographic Society (AGS) Awards for 2015 saw Doltone House Hyde Park bursting with the cream of Australia’s adventurers, conservationists and scientists along with past winners and AG enthusiasts.

AGS Awards are bestowed on exceptional people achieving extraordinary deeds and are the longest running in Australia for adventure and conservation with 2015 also celebrating 30 years of Australian Geographic.

Jessica Watson, winner of the 2010 AGS Young Adventurer of the Year Award and the youngest person ever to sail around the world solo and unassisted at 16 years of age, was the 2015 guest speaker.

Catriona Rowntree hosted the awards as recipients held the 400 in attendance in awe as they recounted some of their inspirational exploits that had led to them receiving their prestigious acknowledgement.

MiSociety is privileged to have been associated with the AG Society’s Awards presentations for many years having watched it grow into the amazing event it now is. Tickets for this year’s event sold out well ahead of time so if you wish to attend (and be inspired) in 2016 we suggest you get in very early.
