Welcome to Amberley

ADF members and families – are you posting to Amberley? We will be holding our Welcome event at the beginning of 2019 and we’d love to see you there!

Families who will be in the Amberley area in 2019 are invited to join us for an afternoon of fun at our community expo extravaganza at the Heritage Centre. There will be interactive and static military displays, rock climbing, live entertainment, jumping castle and a face painter. Assorted community and recreational organisations will be there with information about their services in the Ipswich area. Food and refreshments will also be available.

When registering, please check that your email is accurate in case we need to contact you.

NOTE: This event is only for ADF members and their families.
