Jocelyn Walker AM awarded Member of the Order of Australia

Esteemed Sunshine Coast philanthropist Jocelyn Walker AM has been appointed as a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) in today’s King’s Birthday 2024 Honours List for her for significant service to business and to the community through philanthropic endeavours.

The prestigious recognition especially celebrates Ms Walker’s significant contributions to LifeFlight and the University of the Sunshine Coast (UniSC) Foundation Board. 

Ms Walker has been heavily involved in numerous projects and causes over the years which make the Sunshine Coast region better and bring the community together. Her dedication to LifeFlight and the wider community has been exemplary.

Whether as LifeFlight’s Vice Patron, as the inaugural Chair of the LifeFlight Sunshine Coast and South Burnett Regional Advisory Committee or as a Company Member, the passion and energy Jocelyn has brought to these roles is clearly driven by her commitment to making our community better. 

LifeFlight has drawn upon Ms Walker’s rich history of philanthropic support for the Jocelyn Walker Visitor Experience Centre as part of the new LifeFlight Aeromedical Hub due for completion by June 2025. This centre will enable LifeFlight to continue its strong tradition of welcoming all members of the community to its facility.

LifeFlight has been saving the lives across the Sunshine Coast since 1979 and comes to the aid of one patient every 70 minutes.
