About the event

The annual Order of Australia Association – Australian Defence Force Oration is an initiative of the ACT Branch of the Order of Australia Association. The Oration was established in 2011 with the aim of further recognising the contribution made by military members of the Order of Australia to the fabric of Australian society.

The Oration brings together Defence Force and other recipients of the Order, plus their invited guests, to create a closer understanding of each other’s commitment to service as recognised through the Australian Honours system.
