Australian Legends of the Written Word

Australia
This year the Australia Post Australian Legends Award recognises six significant living novelists, each of whom has made an outstanding contribution to the social and cultural life of this country. The award celebrates the breadth of Australian fiction writing, with the recipients representing literary and popular fiction in various genres.

Australia Post salutes Peter Carey, Bryce Courtenay, Thomas Keneally, David Malouf, Colleen McCullough and Tim Winton. Together they have earned critical acclaim and literary prizes, loyal readerships and immense sales. The pages of their work are distinguished by compelling narratives and distinctive voices, and their substantial talent positions them strongly in an international literary landscape.
