  • One Operation FARMER ASSIST expedition. An expedition for up to 12 people (mix of veterans, partners, civilian friends) for 7 days to western Queensland on Operation FARMER ASSIST to support farmers = $10,000 per expedition to western Queensland. If a sponsoring organisation would like to send one or two representatives, like staff, for the experience of a lifetime, that is entirely in line with our objectives of bringing our ex-ADF community closer to the Townsville and business community. These teams do some great work, see the Operation FARMER ASSIST page here
