Welcome to the Ambulance Victoria Pipes and Drums band website. We pride ourselves on being a family friendly highland pipe band. Ambulance Victoria Pipes and Drums was established in 2009, in Victoria, Australia. We are a unique group of musicians comprised of paramedics as well as private members. We welcome new members including social support members.
We provide a Highland Pipe Band for performance to the community whilst serving as goodwill ambassadors for Ambulance Victoria. This is through proudly representing the values of Ambulance Victoria and celebrating our Scottish heritage through Highland Pipe Band performance.
Since our humble beginnings, we have played all over Victoria and have enjoyed some exciting gigs around the world as well. Some of our most memorable and exciting performances include:
