2017 Father of the Year:
Former NSW Premier Mike Baird, a father of three, was the recipient of the 2017 Australian Father of the Year, in recognition of ongoing commitment to his children and to the wider community.

Mike was recognised by the Shepherd Centre. “My strong advice would be to not do what I did and to take the time. If you’re thinking about taking a week off, take two; if you’re thinking about taking two, take four, or take months.
Mr Baird, who quit politics in January to spend more time with his family, said he was a “very undeserving” Father of the Year, but was “humbled” to receive the title. He said political life “took its toll” and it had been left to his wife Kerryn to “step up many times”.
