St Andrew’s is a grade two pipe band based in
Brisbane, Australia. It was formed from members of the 61st Battalion,
Queensland Cameron Highlanders at the end of the Second World War in
1945. The Battalion had strong Scottish connections and the band was
formed for the purpose of maintaining Scottish Culture and camaraderie
amongst the Ex-Servicemen.
Within a few years of formation the band won the Australian Pipe Band
Championships and since then has successfully competed in many major
competitions, both locally and abroad. The Band is also a regular
participant in major community events, such as Anzac Day, Tartan Day,
the RNA Show and the Ipswich International Tattoo.
Today St Andrew’s is a successful competition band with around 30
playing members. Youthful and passionate, the band continues to compete and perform regularly,
fostering traditional Scottish culture in the Brisbane region.
St. Andrew's Pipe Band joined SCOTS PGC Pipe Band in concert at the Warick Town Hall
The purchase of the band’s
new kilts was proudly funded by the Queensland Government's Gambling Community Benefit Fund.
