Brisbane

Hi and welcome to Brisbane.

My name is Diana Simpson and I am the Defence Special Needs Coordinator for the Brisbane area.

Brisbane is Australia’s third largest city and has something for everyone, especially if you like outdoor living.  with some of the world’s most beautiful beaches within an easy drive (50  minutes south to the Gold Coast and 60 minutes north to the Sunshine Coast), a subtropical climate, picturesque hinterlands, great shopping and fabulous arts and entertainment, Brisbane has it all.

The major Defence establishment in the Brisbane area is at Gallipoli Barracks, located in the suburb of Enoggera.  There is also a naval estalishment on the south side of Brisbane at Bulimba.

By linking in to us, you have access to the wider support, information and assistance that is available throughout our network.
