The Ode

They went with songs to the battle, they were young,

Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow,

They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,

They fell with their faces to the foe.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn

At the going down of the sun and in the morning

We will remember them.


Today’s RSL is very different to what it was many years ago.Today there are veterans from many conflicts, peacekeeping duties and even service during peacetime.



Provide a community for serving and ex-serving members of the Australian Defence Force.
Members come from conflicts in various eras where Australia has sent her troops along with those who have served during Peace-time.

Peer Health

There are numerous ways to get fit and involved for better health with your peers. There is a Walking group that meets every Wednesday and Friday at 9am at the southern Hillarys Boat Harbour car park. At 8am on Wednesdays and Fridays the brave Kayakers take on the sea in all weather. They meet at the Hillarys Yacht Club car park. There is also those who prefer two wheels under their own steam. They meet on Fridays.

Advocacy & Welfare

We have a dedicated volunteer group of members who visit their peers when they are not doing so well. Also have DVA Advocates to help with the all important submissions for injury or ill health caused by service in the Australian Defence Force
