Welcome to the Member Area

Welcome to the "new look" Members' only section of the Fourays Website

This new setup offers a much more user friendly site that will allow members to update their details more readily, and provide a forum for discussion and debate. It might take a bit of getting used to, but the benefits will be well worth it.

Corps Birthday Merchandising Offer

Limited quantities of merchandise will be available on the 18 October 2018 during the OPEN DAY activities, as detailed below.

Australian Army Aviation Corps 50th Birthday - 18 October 2018

Australian Army Aviation will celebrate its 50th birthday on Thursday, 18 October 2018 at the home of Army Aviation in Oakey.

To allay some concerns, below is some more detail as promised, so long ago....feels very "Stars Wars".

18 October 2018,  events which will include:

0830-1030            (Oak) Open Day with static displays showcasing current technologies and aircraft, as well as the new EC135(TBC) and some UAS, a large number of kiosk displays and a sausage sizzle run by one of the local cadet units.  We will also have limited amounts of merchandise available for sale.

1030-1130            (Oak) Capability and flying display (inserting troops, external load/battle simulation)

1130-1330            (Oak) United Drumhead Service ceremonial parade.

1330-1430            (Oak) Afternoon tea and cake cutting ceremony (this is combined with the annual ‘landowners Luncheon’).  

1530                       BARRACKS CLEARED

1800-2359            (Twb) Gala Dinner at the Empire Theatre, Toowoomba.  Black tie.  Limited to max 400 seats, partners welcome. This is also the Corps’ annual dinner and award night (Swartz Shield, Simkin Trophy and Fourays Soldier of the Year).  Chuck in a couple of speeches, too!

I am not controlling this dinner, so cannot advise ticket price or availability yet (it will be listed on Trybooking.com) - we are hoping to confirm a sponsor and ticket prices should be very reasonable (I am told).  Wine served on the night will be a special selection of red and white with a commemorative AAAvn Corps sticker.  We’ll have the Army band, photo-booth, large aircraft posters, Kiowa on-stage and non-stop video/photo slide-show running depicting 50 years of corps history.  VIPs everywhere!

We managed to secure special accom rates at the Burke and Wills Hotel (fully renovated) and now 5-star!  The rates are below (just mention the Army Avn event in October to get the rate):

Burke and Wills Hotel:

554 Ruthven St, Toowoomba City QLD 4350 Australia

07 4632 2433



Room Name


Corporate Queen - 1 x Queen


Corporate Twin - 2 x singles


Superior Corporate - 1 x Queen


Deluxe Queen Spa - 1 x Queen


Luxury King Suite


Luxury King Suite with Balcony


Adjoining Room



For the events in Oakey, access will be off Corfe Road (between Swartz Road and Museum Road) with directed parking on-site.  Controlled, obviously.  For past serving members of the Corps and other members (like our RAEME brethren).  The parking plan has changed to improve access and safety for all.  There will still be a bus, but only for those who may struggle with the 150m walk!

The parade will have grandstand seating for 900+ people, and a further 400 ground level seats.  More than this will push people too far from the action, so they’ll have to stand and use binos!  The parade will be at the East end of the main hangars; the afternoon tea will be near-by, but within easy walking distance.

<< meant to be a map here - stupid system >>  email me for a copy: secretary@fourays.org 

Feel free to share this info with your mates/friends/family.  I will post this update on the Fourays website (incl. Facebook) and as indicated, will send an APB with the same info as you have here to the Membership.  I hope this helps.  I wish I could advise a price for the gala dinner, but cannot at this time.  Drop me a line or an email if you have any concerns or questions.

If you do intend coming along, it is imperative that you advise me, including names of attendees.
