Welcome to the City of Newcastle RSL Pipe Band web site! Use the menu at the top of the page to navigate our site for more information on the Band.

The Band was formed in 1924 under the name of The Newcastle Pipe Band Association. In 1929, the Band was renamed the Newcastle City Pipe Band. It is therefore the oldest Pipe Band in Newcastle, NSW Australia, and we are proud of our history and our heritage. Following a number of name changes over the years, in 1969 the Band became known as The City of Newcastle RSL Pipe Band.

The Band is a member of the NSW Pipe Band Association Ltd. presently graded Gr.4. We meet each Monday Night at the Public School Kahibah at 6:30pm. Entry is from the cul-de-sac at the end of Symes Avenue, off Beath Crescent. (click here to see a map). Experienced pipers and drummers are invited to come along, as are those seeking tuition.
