Naval Association of Australia Geelong Sub Section
The club is located at 90 – 92 Skene street Newtown; Geelong, Victoria has been a proud, long standing club since the late 1940's supporting both veterans and current serving members.
The club contributes to the well-being of members of the Veteran community providing a haven for Veterans of all services, current serving, former, reservists and ex cadets whilst promoting mate-ship and supporting our mature age and less mobile members.  Engage with the ex-Defence community by offering unique initiatives, providing social activities and opportunities to engage with local likeminded people in a family friendly environment promoting community spirit. 
Welfare support includes visiting Veterans at home and in-hospital / hospices to improve the wellbeing of less mobile Veterans and communicating Veteran related information through a club social media (Facebook and Web) page. 
Annual events include ANZAC day and Rats of Tobruk commemorations, Christmas, Grand Final day, Melbourne Cup, and Easter, with weekly events including raffles and membership draw.  Other functions include members, family and guest BBQ's, fund raiser Sausage sizzles and entertainment (Trivia, bands, theme nights and other wellbeing activities).
