Flyover and Defence Services

The Jindabyne area has had a 20 plus year association with the Royal Australian Navy (RAN), principally via personnel and aircraft from RAN Air Squadrons conducting regular high altitude and Search and Rescue (SAR) training in the area.

723 Squadron, and the now-disbanded 817 Squadron, have regularly participated in Snowy River region ANZAC Day ceremonies.

In 2015, more than one hundred 723 Squadron and HMAS ALBATROSS personnel and four helicopters attended, led by 723’s Commanding Officer, together with an RAN Chaplain. In 2017, 50 sailors and two helicopters took part.

In 2018, it is expected that three helicopters and thirty personnel will participate in the commemorations, led by 723 Squadrons Executive Officer, Lieutenant Commander Christopher Smith RAN.

The Snowy River RSL Sub-Branch has again secured the services of a Naval Chaplain, Chaplain Stephen Estherby RAN, to officiate at the Jindabyne ANZAC Day commemorations

723 Squadron is a multi-role squadron operating the EC-135T2+ and Bell 429 Global Ranger helicopters, of which three of the Global Rangers will be based in Jindabyne from 23-27 April.

The Squadron is the Australian Defence Force’s institution for all RAN and Australian Army helicopter training under the Helicopter Advanced Training System (HATS) and has a mixture of RAN and Army instructors.

Able Seaman Brendan Raychaudhuri from the Squadron will offer the Prayer of Thanksgiving at the Jindabyne Dawn Service and Lieutenant Commander Smith will deliver the Commemoative Address at the Jindabyne Main Service.
