How to get to Wagga for the RAAF Graduation Parade.
No 1 Recruit Training Unit is located at RAAF Base Wagga, Forest Hill, NSW, approximately 10 km east of Wagga Wagga on the Sturt Hwy. The base is located on the northern side of the Wagga Wagga Airport.
There is a limited bus service available from Wagga Wagga to RAAF Base Wagga. Taxi services are also available. From the heart of Wagga Wagga, it will cost approximately $30-$35 for a taxi, and should take no longer than 15 minutes.
RAAF Base Wagga has restricted entry; however, if you are attending a Graduation Parade, your name should have been passed to the security checkpoint as part of your invitation process. Approach the main gate to the base, identify yourself to the staff, and once your name has been checked off the list you will be directed to a nearby car park. From this location, you will be directed to walk down to the main parade ground – approximately 500m walk. There is a bus service for guests who may not be able to walk this distance. All visitors are advised to arrive at RAAF Base Wagga at least 40 minutes prior to the start of the parade.
Due to parking limitations on the base, visitors who are currently serving in the ADF are also requested to park in the designated car park.
