Freeman of the City

Honorary Freeman of the City is an honour given to an individual who has demonstrated outstanding dedication to the community. The honour is given to a person who has served the City of Charles Sturt, its community and beyond for many years. This eminent service is of such a special quality by a person of distinction that it warrants an honour by the Council.

Recognition of Honorary Freeman of the City is not given lightly. A high standard for the award must be maintained at all times. If a Freeman is elected to Council, the Freemanship is suspended for the period of office.

Keys to the City

An Honorary Freeman is given an ornamental key to the city. This tradition comes from Medieval times when cities were enclosed by walled fortifications. The key represents honour for service to the community.
