Thanks to the Committee for allowing me to present a holiday package from Lisa at Norfolk Island Travel for travel to Norfolk Island (NI) for ANZAC Day 2022.
I have attached the quote from Norfolk Island Travel as well as the NI RSL Sub Branch plans for 2022. RSL package cost is TBA at this stage and is additional to the NI travel quote. Lisa advises that the RSL program this year cost $185 and included:
- Roast carvery welcome dinner at RSL
- Kapyong Day service including beer and wine at RSL
- ANZAC Day Gunfire breakfast (vets and ex-service only)
- Entertainment at RSL and lunch on ANZAC Day
- Bowling Cub vs RSL bowls match
- RSL memorabilia shirt
This would be a great addition to the package.
A couple of good websites for members to get information on NI are https://www.norfolkisland.com.au and https://www.discovernorfolkisland.com/norfolk There are also FB pages like Norfolk Island, Discover Norfolk Island and Norfolk Island Tourism. The itinerary allows for some free days so tour information can be found at https://www.pinetreetours.com and https://www.bauntitours.com
There were two groups there this year – TPI Association Redcliff branch and a Vietnam Veterans’ group from Brisbane. Pete and Toni Vesley went over in 2018 with a group from D Coy 4 RAR I think it was so he might be a good POC if anyone wants to chat about how that went.
Further details will be provided as they come to hand.
A 2/4 RAR Association banner will be making the trip for those attending to march behind on the day. The event date is down as 25 April 2022 but the itinerary could be for as long or as short a time as you would like to be there.

“Proposed 2/4 RAR Association trip to Norfolk Island for ANZAC Day 2022
With the changes from Air NZ to Qantas servicing Norfolk Island, Norfolk Island Travel Centre have been in meetings with Qantas to try get seats held and confirmed at the same great group price Air NZ give. Unfortunately, this was unsuccessful, and the Qantas fares have increased slightly so packages prices have changed.
For those who have already requested and received an information package there is now an updated one available. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for the updated package if Nicola has not already sent one to you.
With all bookings and non-refundable deposits due by 22 Oct 21 and final payments no later than 7 Feb 22.”
