Member for Riverina Michael McCormack has added his warm congratulations to Australians recognised in today’s Queen’s Birthday honours list, which features Cowra’s Dr Louise Baker and Barbara Callaghan.

Mr McCormack said the Queen’s Birthday Honours reflected the diversity of contribution made by Australians – from the arts to law, from church leadership to public service, from health to education.

Across the Riverina, Mr McCormack acknowledged others with past or present connections who have been honoured for their distinguished contribution to the region and beyond, including:
