You've landed on the website of The Oasis Townsville.

The Oasis Townsville is a referral and support hub for veterans' access to the services that are available in Townsville, especially the many supporting Ex-Service Organisation (ESOs).

This will assist veterans to transition, connect and integrate with their families into the Townsville Community. We will assist anyone in the ex-ADF community in Townsville whether transitioning now or been out of the ADF for any number of years.

Townsville is a Garrison City with a significant ex-ADF community.

DVA figures estimate there are over 15,000 ex-ADF living in the federal electorate of Herbert. In addition there are over 5000 serving military personnel posted to Townsville. With their families, this constitutes about 20% of the overall Townsville population.


The idea for a "concierge service" in Townsville came from a gathering of

some of the ESOs almost 10 years ago.

It became a reality during the 2017 Queensland Election.


The aim of The Oasis Townsville is to provide a focal point for referral to the services provided by the ESOs and other agencies in the Townsville region, to transitioning servicemen and women; and to other members of the ex-ADF community in Townsville who may require assistance.


We’ll do this from a site located in Oonoonba at the site of the old Department of Primary Industries (DPI) building, situated in the new housing development at 'The Village'.

Until that facility is built, we have an office at 143 Walker Street in the CBD, courtesy of the Mayor of Townsville Cr. Jenny Hill (a veteran).

We are receiving strong support from our local member in the Queensland Government, Coralee O'Rourke (Member for Mundingburra) and Minister for Communities.
