HMAS Cairns will be celebrating Navy Week in Cairns from 13-18 July 2017. Public events will include a Freedom of Entry march through the CBD and RAN Band school visits.

The practice of exercising Freedom of Entry into a town or city can be traced back to medieval times. Come along and watch this traditional march as personnel from HMAS Cairns march along the Cairns Esplanade and Abbott Street. At the Cairns City Library you will be able to view the traditional Freedom of Entry challenge take place. This is a short verbal challenge between the Commanding Officer of HMAS Cairns, the Police and the Cairns City Mayor.
