AIIAV Study Tours in 2017

Published 14 Oct 2016

We are contemplating two Study Tours in 2017 after our very successful Study Tour to Sri Lanka this year.  One would be to Iran and the other to South America and Cuba.

At this stage I am seeking your indication as to whether you might be interested in coming on one or both.

Regarding the one to Iran, it would be between ten days and a fortnight and take place in March or April (due to the weather).

If you are interested in coming on the Iran Study Tour can you please indicate the timing you would prefer?

Following are potential dates.  Please let us know your preferences by emailing me on

March 4 – 17
March 11 – 24
March 18 – 31
March 25 – April 7
April 1 – 14
April 8 – 21
April 15 -28

Please note that Labor Day in March 13 and Easter Sunday is April 16

The South American Study Tour would involve a little under two weeks in Chile, Peru and Argentina; then with an optional extension to either Cuba or Ecuador (including the Galapagos) for 4 or 5 days.

This Study Tour would take place probably in October; after the Grand Final and before the Melbourne Cup.

Can you please indicate whether you are interested in coming and whether you would like an extension to go to Cuba?

Please let us know your preferences by emailing me on
Chile, Peru and Argentine only

Extension to Cuba
Extension to Ecuador

I look forward to receiving your response soon; as planning for the Iran Study Tour must commence in October.  The Study Tour Groups will be limited to less than 25 and will be guided.

Many thanks

Patrick Moore
