Judith Durham and the Order of Australia

Judith Durham has a significant history with the Order of Australia. The Seekers were recently awarded as Officers in the Order of Australia. Recent press coverage focuses on the 2014 award. So, to a newbie Seekers fan, it would appear the band just started gaining attention from this institution. In reality, The Seekers have been linked with the Order for decades.

Judith was actually first awarded with a Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) in 1995 for her work in music. This was soon after The Seekers reunited in 1993 for their 25th Anniversary Silver Jubilee. Judith paved the way for Australians to participate in international music charts.

Congratulations Judith for all your contributions to the music industry. We are lucky to still have you with us.
