Bundaberg will host the upcoming Queensland Legacy State Conference which will see eight legacy clubs travel to the region when it kicks off on Friday 22 July.

The conference will see members join together for a memorial service in Buss Park followed by a Civic Reception in the Bundaberg Civic Centre on Friday before business sessions and a dinner function on Saturday 23 July.

The event is hosted by a different Queensland club each year, with Bundaberg last hosting a conference in 2012.

Bundaberg Legacy President Wayne McNee said the annual conference provided the opportunity for clubs to come together and discuss important topics.

“The state conference provides a great opportunity for Queensland Legacy Clubs to meet to discuss important issues relevant to our organisation,” Wayne said.

“We will be holding a memorial ceremony in remembrance of Legacy Widows, Widowers and children which is supported by Bundaberg Regional Council and our local Ninth Battalion, The Royal Queensland Regiment.

“Each year the host club sets a theme for the event, this year’s being ‘Legacy – Relevancy now and into the future’.

“At our business sessions on Saturday, each club is invited to present papers at the conference with additional presentations this year from Legacy Australia and Perfect Events.”

Representatives from the national body, Legacy Australia, will also be in attendance for the event.

Wayne said the conference would provide members the chance to foster friendships, with everyone looking forward to the annual event.

“Legacy is an organisation that fosters mateship and the spirit of service and it is always great to catch up with our fellow legatees from other areas of our state,” he said.

“The conference dinner is a perfect way to end the annual event on a high note.”

Entertainment at the conference dinner includes guest speaker Normie Rowe and live music from the Australian Army Band Brisbane.

Tickets are limited for the conference dinner to be held at the Bundaberg Services Club, but you can secure your tickets by contacting Bundaberg Legacy on (07) 4152 5958

  1. I’ve just become aware that Legacy has its conference in Bundaberg this weekend. Right beside the Bundaberg Services Club is the Anzac Memorial Pool. Our original Anzacs established a pool on that site in 1923 with money they raised themselves. It was for commemoration and recreation of all those who served in WW1. The driving force behind it was Pvt George Stedman who lost his left arm in France. His family still live here today, as do the descendants of many diggers, WW2 veterans, and veterans of wars and peacekeeping missions of recent times.
    The Council are planning to demolish this pool. We won’t let this happen out of respect for the veterans who gifted us a wonderful legacy.
