Summary

The Women's Royal Australian Army Corps Association was formed in New South Wales in 1977, following a visit to Australia by HRH Princess Margaret. Colonel-in-Chief (1953-1984) of the Women's Royal Australian Army Corps (WRAAC), HRH Princess Margaret visited many parts of Australia in 1975. She observed a WRAAC Parade at Victoria Barracks New South Wales in October that year.

Established after a reunion, the association aims to provide contact and disseminate information to its members. This is achieved through quarterly meetings (March/ May/ August/ November) and a newsletter, Best Times, produced by the New South Wales Association.
