We offer many pathways to recovery through our comprehensive support and rehabilitation services. 

From psychological and physical rehabilitation services to wellbeing programs and social connection activities – our services are proven to make a real difference. They can be accessed nationally and through purpose-built Family Recovery Centres in North Queensland, South East Queensland, Northern TerritoryTasmania, online and outreach areas. Many of our services are flexible and offered at different times to help you find something that best meets your needs.   
Reaching out for support after an injury, or during transition, is imperative for improving long-term health and wellbeing, and quality of life. No matter where you’ve served or in what capacity, or whether you’ve supported a loved one who has served, you can access support through our services. 



Are you in the process of being medically discharged? Have you sustained illness or injury as a result of your service? 


If you answered yes to either of the above questions, we strongly encourage you to book an appointment with one of our experienced Advocates today. 


The Cairns RSL Sub Branch have a number of Advocates who are highly trained and know the ins-and-outs of the DVA claims process. They know how to gather the required documentation to assist you in lodging your claim. All our Advocates are former servicemen and women, who not only understand the unique circumstances of military life but are able to apply their own experiences to ensure that you get the compensation and benefits to which you are entitled. 



We can provide assistance on a case-by-case basis to those in need. 



The loss of one of our Defence Family members affects us all. We consider it to be our obligation to ensure that no digger is laid to rest alone and that their sacrifices are remembered and recognised appropriately. 


We have RSL Representatives that will attend the funeral services of our fallen comrades. Our Poppy funeral service ensures those who have served are remembered with the Ode and the Last Post as special recognition of their services. 



Our volunteers will come to you – where and when you need it the most.  We will come to your home or hospital bed and can help in the following ways: 

  • Providing mateship 

  • Assist with simple jobs around the house 

  • Help with transitioning from hospital back to home 



The Sub Branch brings people together who understand and have been through the same/similar experiences as you. We know the meaning of mateship and camaraderie in a way that most civilians don’t. Our members are there for one another and are more than happy to lend a helping hand or listening ear. The Sub Branch runs a number of activities throughout the year which will give you the opportunity to connect with likeminded people.  Alternatively, the door is always open, and you are welcome to drop by for a coffee and chat.
