Our facilities are available for members and the community for weddings, memorials, birthdays, celebrations, annual dinners, and luncheons.  We have an A1 commercial kitchen which you can hire to self-cater, or we may be able to cater depending on volunteer availability.  Our bar is well stocked and our prices particularly good.  We can open the bar for functions. 

Our charter is not only to help and support veterans, service personnel and their families but is also to work with the community to support each other and spread the culture of mateship.  That culture of mateship helped get our past and recent ANZACs and soldiers through some tough times. Mateship is what we all need during these tough events that are upon us now.
