Do you have some local war memorabilia you'd like to donate to our museum? We'd love to hear from you!
Attend a Service
Woodend RSL raises funds for veterans' welfare by conducting two major appeals each year:
ANZAC Day - when badges and other commemorative items are sold by volunteers throughout the community
Remembrance Day (also known as "Poppy Day") - when red poppies are sold by volunteers throughout the community
We greatly appreciate your support on these days.
Our venue plays host to a range of regular and one-off events for our members, visitors and community to enjoy!
Dine in our bistro, come for a drink or attend a special event!
Are you a volunteer?
Woodend RSL Sub branch needs you!
We're always looking for people with an interest in veteran welfare and enthusiasm to assist our committee with special events and initiatives.
