The 6 RAR Association is a not-for-profit organisation that helps continue the camaraderie and family values forged as part of our members service in the Sixth Battalion Royal Australian Regiment.   Our membership includes current and ex-service personnel and their families.   We hold reunions every five years to gather, reminisce and rekindle friendships; make new friendships and provide support for our 6 RAR family.

Our 2020 Reunion will be run across the weekend of 5-7 June 2020, this particular period will commemorate the forming of the Brisbane based 6th Battalion on 6 June 1965, the 20th anniversary of the Battalions involvement in East Timor and the 10th anniversary of the Battalion’s involvement in MTF1 Afghanistan.  It is expected to be a major event and will attract a great number of soldiers who proudly served their nation.  We expect up to 2000 members and ex-members of 6th Battalion (and family) will want to be part of this Brisbane Reunion and the many activities and commemorative events planned.

In the lead up to the event, and at the event, we will be running raffles/auctions to help cover the cost of the event; and reduce the cost of attending for our members.   We have sourced donations from businesses across Australia for these fundraising events and those companies are listed below.

    Steve and Terri Irwin's vision has always been to make Australia Zoo the biggest and best wildlife conservation facility in the entire world, and there is no other zoo like Australia Zoo.

    Here at Australia Zoo we just love animals - from the tiniest lizard to the tallest giraffe! Australia Zoo is a great environment for our animals - it provides not only a haven for our collection of over one hundred different species including Steve's favourites the Crocodile, Tiger, and Cheetah, but is also a great platform for those same animals to act as ambassadors for their cousins in the wild. This gives Australia Zoo the ability to educate the world about animal conservation and to increase the chances of protecting all wildlife.

    Australia Zoo is located on Queensland's beautiful Sunshine Coast. Just 45 minutes north of Brisbane on Steve Irwin Way, it is the home of some of Australia's most unique and amazing wildlife, as well as some remarkable animals from overseas. Your visit to the Home of The Crocodile Hunter will definitely thrill and amaze you!  Getting to Australia Zoo has never been easier! Whether you are catching a train, jumping on our coach pickup service or driving a car, we can help you out.
