State Memorial To Honour Harold Mitchell AC

19 February 2024

A state memorial to honour the remarkable life of Harold Mitchell AC has been accepted by his family.

A pioneer, a visionary and a philanthropist – Harold Mitchell truly embodied the essence of 'Living Large'.

Harold Mitchell's influence in shaping Australia as a media force began at the age of 16, but his service to the community and generosity would last a lifetime.

Mr Mitchell will be remembered not only for his fierce leadership and professional success, but for his unwavering care as a generous philanthropist and benefactor of the arts, sports, education and health.

The Department of Premier and Cabinet will work with Mr Mitchell’s family and state memorial details will be announced in due course.

Quote attributable to Premier Jacinta Allan

“Harold Mitchell was an extraordinary man who achieved extraordinary things. His memory will live on in the causes he championed, the change he inspired and the modern Australia he helped to build.”
