Hi my name is Staci Foot and I am the DSNSG Darling Downs Coordinator.  Our group covers families living in the Toowoomba, Cabarlah and Oakey areas.

Toowoomba is the gateway to the Darling Downs and is situated approximately 90 minutes dirve from Brisbane with Oakey, the home of the Army Aviation Centre being 35km west of Toowoomba.

For more information about the Darling Downs 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.

For more information about what we are doing in this area and when the next event or coffee and chat is, please contact me on 0412 012 583 or email
