Palmerston

Hi and welcome to the  Palmerston area. My name is Kate Batty and I am your local Defence Special Needs Coordinator for both the Darwin and Palmerston areas.

Palmerston is located about 25kms away from Darwin and of course, Darwin is the main gateway to explore some of the best natural and cultural attractions the Northern Territory has to offer.  The major Defence establishment in the Palmerston area is Robertson Barracks, the home of the 1st Brigade.

Other major Defence establishments in the Darwin Area are Larrakeyah Barracks, RAAF Base Darwin, Darwin Naval Base and HMAS Coonawarra.

Our group holds regular coffee mornings and family events and by linking in to us, you have access to the wider support, information and assistance that is available throughout our network.

For more information about the Palmerston region, have a look at the handy Your Community section on the Defence Community Organisation website.  If you are interested in attending upcoming Defence Community Organisation events in your area, please visit the Events page.  You can also find comprehensive resources available for download from the Resources page.

Please email me to find out what else we are doing and to go on our mailing list.
