Timor Awakening Notices

Due to COVID19, we have postponed Timor Awakening (TA13) until further notice. Pending Government directions for travel and COVID19, we are considering tentative dates for TA13 for late August. We will be reviewing this based on Government advice as of 1 May, and again 1 June, at which point if not changed, TA13 will be amalgamated with TA14 in October 2020. Once again if Government and health conditions permit.

Please stay safe and healthy.

Timor Awakening Program

The Aim of Timor Awakening is to improve the health and wellbeing of veterans and their families. The program consists of holistic health education, a reflective experience in Timor-Leste and follow-up re-integration engagement.

Australian and Timor-Leste Veterans share a special bond. Our joint forefathers defied gravity in WW2 evading capture and mounting a successful campaign against far numerically superior invading forces. The bond was forged with blood, sweat, tears, respect and friendship. In WW2 many Timorese gave everything they had, 60,000 lost their lives, for the survival & mission of stranded Australian soldiers. Since 1999, Australian soldiers have been provided similar hospitality, security and friendship, on operations and as returning veterans. Out of the ashes of 1999 and the darkness of decades of unjust foreign policy, Australian and Timorese Veterans stand united, with hope and conviction, for a future that is bright, just, and peaceful for the next generation of both peoples.
