CDF Parade 2022

ADFA will hold the 2022 Chief of the Defence Force Parade on Saturday 19 February 2022 from 0930 to 1100.

The Parade marks the culmination of the initial military training period for more than 330 incoming Trainee Officers, and their acceptance as members of the corps of Navy Midshipmen, Army and Air Force Officer Cadets at the Academy.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, ADFA is unable to open the event to families and friends of Midshipmen and Officer Cadets, the broader Defence community and general public.  

The parade will be livestreamed on the ADFA Facebook page and YouTube channels for the enjoyment of families, friends, the broader Defence community and the general public.
