From a parade down Sydney's George St on August 20 to a civic reception in Melbourne two days after that and a function at Adelaide's Town Hall a day later, the athletes will get the chance to meet their biggest fans.

Those in Brisbane will get their chance to grab autographs with a parade down Queen Street Mall on August 24th then it's on to civic receptions in both Hobart and Perth on the following days.

The celebrations will end with a public function in Canberra before the medallists attend an exclusive do at Parliament house.

"We are thrilled the welcome home celebrations are happening again in what is now a tradition for our Olympic teams," chef de mission Nick Green said.

"We are all very proud of the way our 2012 team has competed in London.

"We have a few days left of solid competition but once these Games have closed our athletes will look forward to the opportunity to thank Australia for their passionate support".
