Avalon 2021 has been cancelled due to the challenges of Covid-19

The next show is scheduled to be held from the 28th February to 5th March 2023

Yup, just have to sit and wait now to hope tourists are allowed back in and quarantine rules finished by then......
If it wasn't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all...

Hardly a surprise and if it had been on, pretty sure that no UK visitors would have been allowed in to Australia

Big disappointment for local resident population I expect. Let's hope they put on a big show next year and we can go if we want to.

From some comments I've read online on the Aussie government websites, the Aussie borders to us Europeans could be closed until 2023. Avalon will take place in late February 2023. It might be a last minute announcement for open borders?

On the upside the team behind the show have already said it will be celebrating the by then belated 100th birthday of the RAAF, so it should be a good one!
