2018 Queensland Father of the Year
Darin Browne is a father of three daughters, and grandfather of one, who has dedicated his life to helping those less fortunate. Whether in his full-time profession as a behavioural optometrist helping children with learning difficulties thrive, as a foster parent for more than 25 years, or as one of the founding couples of Lily House for women and children fleeing domestic violence, Darin gives all he can. But it’s seeing the unconditional love he’s shown his daughters now being shared with others that fills his heart the most.
The Queensland Father of the Year Award honours and celebrates the importance of fathers and father-figures throughout our state and its local communities.
Congratulations to all the finalists.
You are all highly-deserving nominees and and inspiration to fathers.
The aim of the award is to recognise the significant role fathers play in their children’s well-being and development and to raise awareness of the value of fathers in the family and the community.
It identifies and honours outstanding fathers for their exceptional commitment to raising their children or for their exemplary contribution to the development of children in the community.
