Lavarack Barracks, incorporating the 3rd Brigade and supporting units, in collaboration with RSL Queensland, held the Lavarack Barracks Open Day at the beginning of September to provide the general public an opportunity to gain an appreciation of the training, equipment and professionalism of the Army, while also raising funds for Legacy.
The event catered for the whole family, with displays of military equipment, rides in Protected Mobility Vehicles, field guns, tanks and helicopters. There were also displays from a number of Defence agencies including Defence Families Australia and a number of Ex Service organisations such as Mates4Mates.
GHS representatives ran an informative stall for the event to support Joint Health Unit – North Queensland.
