Melbourne North

Welcome to Melbourne North. Currently we don’t have a Coordinator for the Melbourne North area. For information about special needs or what our group is doing, particularly in this area please contact the National Coordinator on 1800 037 674 or email. If you are interested in the coordinator position please contact the National Coordinator Sandy Soulsby on for more information.

DSNSG Melbourne North covers families living in the Macleod, Watsonia, South Morang, Greensborough, Epping and surrounding areas.  We also provide assistance to families living the Burwood and Ringwood areas.

The major Defence establishment in the Melbourne North area is the Simpson Army Barracks located in the suburb of Watsonia.  In addition, Maygar Barracks is located in Broadmeadows.

Families with special needs posting into this area need to be aware that where they are housed may affect the type of services and support they require as the housing stock covers many different council and disability regions.  For specific special needs information in relation to where you are considering being housed, please contact the National Coordinator on 1800 037 674.

For more information about the Melbourne 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 the National Office on 1800 037 674 or for email please click here email
