Australian Defence Force Academy

Life as a Trainee Officer

Most people don’t realise that being a member of the Defence Force is, in many ways, just like a regular job.

There are plenty of opportunities to participate in extra-curricular activities, sports and social events at ADFA. Regular social events are held, including formal mess dinners, sporting social functions and other social gatherings.

When it comes time to relax, the accommodation at ADFA provides everything you need to feel right at home. The rooms are comfortable and private, and there are common areas, lounges and the Cadets Mess complex where you can unwind. ADFA offers a huge range of opportunities that simply cannot be found at any other university.

It’s little wonder that most graduates say that the years they spent at ADFA were some of the best of their lives.
