More than 1000 Australians, including a record proportion of women, have shared in Australia Day honours.

Of the 1040 Australians on the list there are 732 awards in the general division, and a record number 346 - or 47 per cent - are women.

The youngest recipient is just 17 years of age, the oldest is 99.

Included in the list are:

  • Companion of the Order (AC): seven
  • Officer of the Order (AO): 25
  • Member of the Order (AM): 155
  • Medal of the Order (OAM): 545
  • Military Division: 30
  • Meritorious Awards: 197

The Order of Australia awards were created in 1975 by then prime minister Gough Whitlam. The awards replaced the British Imperial honours system, which invariably recognised rich, powerful men.

Yet that disparity, up until 2016, has been significant as women have made up just 30 per cent of recipients. Here's how the Order of Australia awards have panned out by gender since 2012, according to Office of the Official Secretary to the Governor-General.
