Freedom of the City
The Freedom of the City is reserved for military units which have a significant attachment to the City of Onkaparinga.
Freedom of the City is the highest honour the City can confer on a military unit.
The award is for the important role the unit plays in the community,
- by providing an example of leadership,
- encouraging skill development and
- providing a significant voluntary service to the community.
Recipients are recognised on an honour board, which is displayed in the Council Chamber.
