About Australia Remembers

Currumbin RSL is proud to initiate the project called Australia Remembers. This  project is a program of events, Veteran fundraising activities and Remembrance activities set around Remembrance events including ANZAC Day with a focus on the commemoration between 2014 – 2018.

The Centenary of ANZAC 2014 to 2018 is the most important period of commemoration for Australians. This period marks 100 years since Australia’s involvement in the First World War, the ANZAC Centenary is a time to honour the sacrifice and service contributed by our original ANZACs, and the many of Australian servicemen and women who have defended and continue to defend our values and freedoms, in wars, conflicts and peace operations throughout a century of service.

On April 25, Currumbin RSL will commemorate 100 years since the fateful day when many Australian and New Zealand soldiers lost their lives on the shores of Gallipoli.  This day is recognised for its historical significance and also the part it played in shaping a new nation.

Through this website and activities, Currumbin Palm Beach RSL Sub Branch and Memorial Club aim to provide the opportunity for remembrance, reconciliation, community spirit and education.

To directly support our Veterans, Currumbin RSL established the Currumbin Palm Beach Veterans Support Centre. We also have close association with contemporary Veteran charities such as Soldier On – helping our wounded soldiers and Cam’s Cause. Soldier On focuses its support on contemporary Veterans.

As we move to 2019 and beyond we look to continue the ANZAC Spirit. For all information relating to ANZAC Day 2019 visit currumbinrsl.com.au

Currumbin RSL Veterans’ Support Centre

In successful operation for almost 20 years, the Currumbin RSL Veterans Support Centre (VSC) is run by two paid staff and over 20 volunteers with all arms of the Defence Force represented.  The centre is funded almost exclusively by Currumbin RSL with support from the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA).

They exist to offer assistance to both current and ex-service personnel and their families through personal support, legal advice, hospital and home visits, accessing entitlements and providing a social hub.

A recent analysis undertaken showed that over the past five years the VSC had accessed over $9M in entitlement for Veterans and their families.  As important, if not more so, in the past 12 months they have provided over 6,000 hours of volunteer work including home, hospital and respite care visits.
