Home Base

for the Veteran Community in Townsville

Representing 20% of Townsville's population,

the veteran community

(which includes all current serving soldiers, sailors and aviators and their families)

can make a significant impact when supported appropriately.


The Oasis Townsville provides a place to meet over a coffee or activity and connect to other veterans and their families

(including referral to the right Ex-Service Organisation (ESO) in Townsville)

and to find the best services in Townsville to support integration into the community.

The facility then and now is, in effect what today's servicemen and women might call a 'Reception, Staging, On-forwarding and Integration (RSO&I) facility for ex-servicemen and women and their families into the Townsville Community.
