Sub-branch

Welcome to Currumbin Palm Beach RSL Sub Branch

Established in 1947 at the Old School of Arts Hall in Currumbin, our Sub branch has a very proud history caring for our veteran community. While we have grown over time we have always maintained our focus and commitment to providing veteran support and commemoration. We established the Ron Workman OAM Veteran Support Centre in 1998 and the Young Veteran Support Services in 2017. Both of these services provide veteran support, advocacy and connect veterans to essential services. We also offer a social and wellbeing program with focus on connecting our veterans.

Vision

Past Present Future

Mission

We honour the reason we exist, but ensure we are relevant in the present, with an eye on the future.

We also invest in our veteran facilities including the Cenotaph and Memorial Garden at Currumbin RSL waterfront. Our days of Remembrance are hosted at these sites and are reflective and inclusive.

We are always looking for new members and welcome feedback from our current members. Join our veteran community, connect with other veterans, reach out for support if you need it and become a part of this very special group. Together we are better.

WE WILL REMEMBER THEM

One of the Key Roles of our RSL includes Commemoration and Remembrance. This is done via important and significant Remembrance Days such as ANZAC Day & Remembrance Day, along with others.

COMMEMORATION

Anzac day - april 25 2021

ANZAC Day marks the anniversary of the landing at Gallipoli in 1915 during World War I. However our ANZAC Day commemorative service goes beyond this. It is the day where we remember all Australians who served and died in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations. Currumbin RSL is the creator, funder and manager of one of Australia’s largest regional Dawn Services which attracts tens of thousands of people each year.

VP VJ DAY – AUGUST 15 2021

World War II lasted from 1939 to 1945 and was the most widespread war in history which directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. We hold a small but special service on VP VJ Day and are proud to have a small number of WWII veterans in our Sub Branch.

VIETNAM VETERANS DAY – AUGUST 18 2021

We remember the sacrifices of those who died and thank the 60,000 Australians who served during the 10 years of Australia’s involvement in the Vietnam War between 1962 and 1972. Sadly, 521 died and 3000 were wounded. Currumbin Palm beach RSL held its inaugural Vietnam Veterans’ Day commemoration in 2021. All Currumbin Palm Beach RSL Sub Branch members were invited to attend a cenotaph service, followed by an informal luncheon. Vietnam Veterans’ Day will become a permanent day of commemoration moving forward.
