REUNION 2020 Welcome Back to Brisbane 5th - 7th June 2020
Welcome back to Brisbane and what promises to be the best attended and most exiting 6 RAR Reunion ever! The Battalion will be 55 years old and all those who have served are welcome to come and catch up with those you shared your service with, wherever it was. We promise a minimum of three days of revelry and camaraderie which can only be found with those who have had common service.
We have booked top notch venues, hospitality, food and refreshments to ensure your every need is met. All venues are located close to trains/buses.
So as to tailor your reunion experience, we ask you to consider what you believe to be your most treasured year/s of service and where that was. We will have as many areas as possible where you can gather together, but you can also roam as you please.
2020 also represents the 20th anniversay of 6 RAR's deployment on Operation Astute in 2000 and the 10th anniversary of MTF 1 to Afghanistan in 2010. Thus, we are tailoring this renunion to attract the 2000 and 2010 veterans back to Brisbane and them feel welcome to part of this healthy association.

Sunday 7th June 2020 –Commemorative Service, General Meeting and Spit Roast Luncheon.
Commemorative Service: During the 55 years to this point, our Battalion has given great service to the Nation and many of our comrades have given their all, whilst many many more have suffered wounds of a physical or psychological nature. Our Commemorative Service will honour these and all who have served the Nation through our Battalion.
General Meeting: This will be in the usual format, where office bearers will stand down and the new committee for the next five years will be elected. We urge you younger veterans out there consider stepping forward and playing a deeper role within the association.
Spit Roast Luncheon: Now it is time to relax with a scrumptious meal (including dessert) and enjoy the ambience of the National Memorial Walk while listening to music of the eras.
