A group of people

Members of the Frank MacDonald Memorial Prize Study Tour for 2021-2022 have been announced.

Traditionally, the tour group travels in April  each year for  approximately 10-14 days and visits sites that relate to Tasmanian involvement in World War One in France and Belgium.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and international travel restrictions the tour in 2021 became a domestic study tour of significant World War One and World War Two sites in Albany, Western Australia and Darwin, in the Northern Territory. The tour in 2022 will again be a domestic tour.
