From teachers to performers, sailors and doctors - Tasmanian residents have been recognised with Queen's Birthday honours for their significant contributions to their communities.
Here is more about the Tasmanians who are being celebrated:
ROBYN MOORE AM
- For significant service to charitable organisations, and to the performing arts
If her face isn't familiar - her voice definitely is. For decades, Robyn Moore AM has captivated audiences across Australia.
A voiceover artist is just one of the many hats she wears - perhaps best known as the voice of beloved Yoram Gross character Blinky Bill.
BARBARA BAKER AC
- For eminent service to the people of Tasmania through leading contributions to the law, to the judiciary and to the administration of justice, particularly in the area of family law, to professional legal organisations, and as a mentor and role model for young women, and as the 29th Governor appointed in Tasmania
Tasmania's newly-appointed 29th Governor has been awarded one of the country's highest honours.
Barbara Baker AC has been appointed a Companion of the Order of Australia in this year's Queen's Birthday Honours.
PAULINE SAMSON OAM
- For service to swimming
In 2006, Pauline Samson became the first member of Masters Swimming Tasmania to be appointed a life member of the national association.
Now, she has been honoured with a Medal of the Order of Australia for her service to swimming and Masters Australia Swimming more broadly.
JAMES WILCOX OAM
- For service to the community through a range of organisations
James Wilcox's service to Rotary has gone beyond three decades on a journey which has taken him from Longford to Nepal and back again.
Having been recognised within Rotary with the Service Above Self award, Mr Wilcox can now add Order of Australia (General Division) to his impressive resume.
DR ERIC WOEHLER OAM
- For service to bird ecology
A 63-year-old Tasmanian ecologist who has dedicated two-thirds of his life to birds has been honoured with an Order of Australia medal.
Standing on a semi-frozen sub-antarctic island looking at a mass of penguins who have never seen humans before is all in a day's work for Dr Eric Woehler OAM.
NOEL BEVEN AM
- For significant service to horticulture, to agriculture, and to rural youth
Few understand the land as well as Noel Beven AM.
For decades, he has not only worked the Tasmanian soil himself, but also used his skills and expertise to benefit others making a living in agricultural industries.
And he always had an eye on future generations, most notably in 1983 when he was central to the creation of Agfest, serving as the state president of Rural Youth Tasmania at the time.
DR JOHN PAULL OAM
- For service to medicine, and to history
Dr John Paull's work in anaesthetics has seen him fill important nationwide positions.
His passion for history also saw him publish several books, combining his lifelong loves of medicine and storytelling.
HOWARD BLAKE AM
- For significant service to accounting, and to the public sector
The position of Auditor-General requires a highly-trained eye, impeccable attention to detail and a thorough understanding of the principles of transparency and accountability in government - all traits that Howard "Mike" Blake AM holds in spades.
He served in the position in Tasmania from 2004 to 2016, including probes into the government's attempts to downsize the public service, and the response of authorities following two major bushfire reports.
ROSEANNE MCKEAND OAM
- For service to the community through art programs
A young love of art developed into a life-time of dedication for Roseanne McKeand OAM.
Mrs McKeand has been an art teacher and educator for a number of years, working with children through to adults across the state, created art-based programs for foster children, been a lead artist and facilitator across a number of community projects, and was a founding member of the Tasmania Research Network.
EDGAR (JAMES) MCDERMOTT OAM
- For service to veterans
The retired serviceman has had a prestigious career in the defence force. He was a member of both the Australian Army and the Royal Australian Navy.
He has served as a state secretary and advocate for the Australian Federation of Totally and Permanently Incapacitated Ex-Servicemen and Women Tasmanian Branch.
ROBERT ORR OAM
- For service to conservation and the environment
It could be argued that Geeveston resident Robert Orr knew the Kermandie River better than anywhere else.
Mr Orr has been a Landcare volunteer since 1996, and has worked tirelessly towards the Kermandie River clean up project during that 25 year period.
RODNEY FRASER OAM
- For service to the community through a range of organisations
Helping others and volunteering is a way of life for some people. It is in their every action and how they choose to spend their time. One Norwood man has been recognised for his significant service to the community through a Medal of the Order of Australia.
Rodney Fraser OAM has had many positions with Rostrum Australia - an association that seeks to help people with public speaking training - and its connected clubs.
ALISON MONK OAM
- For service to hockey
For Alison Monk, hockey has been a lifelong love.
Initially inspired by a teacher in high school to take up the sport, once on the hockey court Mrs Monk never looked back.
In a twist of fate, Mrs Monk would also become a physical education teacher- undoubtedly inspiring her students to get on the hockey field as well.
DIANE NAILON OAM
- For service to early childhood education
Diane Nailon has been working in early childhood education for over 40 years, specialising in teacher education and working with communities.
Her CV is so comprehensive that upon her appointment to the University of Tasmania in 2009, she had to condense it significantly.
"They don't read anything over 10 pages!"
STEPHEN RINTOUL AAM AO
- For distinguished service to climate science through oceanographic and Antarctic research and policy development
The freezing climate of the Antarctic has been a second home for Dr Stephen Rintoul AAM since he started his passion for climate science, through oceanographic and Antarctic research and policy development.
Dr Rintoul grew up in a house where science was the norm. His mother was a science teacher and would bring microscopes home from school to share the research with her family. It is no surprise that Dr Rintoul dedicated his life to the field ever since.
DAVID PORTER AM
- For significant service to the law, and to the judiciary, in Tasmania
Another honour has been added to acting judge David Porter's resume, with the distinguished legal professional appointed a Member of the Order of Australia as part of this year's Queen's Birthday Honours.
Recognised for significant service to the law, and to the judiciary in Tasmania, the Honourable Justice David James Porter AM had worked in both civil and criminal law for 32 years before becoming a judge in 2008.
