We currently do not have a coordinator in the Cairns area.  Our group covers all special needs families living in Far North QLD.  The two main Defence establishments in this beautiful tropical city are HMAS CAIRNS and the 51st Battalion, Far North Queensland Regiment.

Cairns is host to two unique natural wonders of the world – The Great Barrier Reef and The Daintree Rainforest.  Both are World Heritage listed.

For more information about the Cairns 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 give our National Office a call on 1800 037 674 or email  for information about what is happening in this area.
