Townsville Area Office

The Townsville Area Office team provides ADF members and families with local information and access to support and information services. It organises regular events for fulltime current serving ADF members and their Defence recognised dependants.

The office is staffed by an Area Manager, Defence Social Workers, Military Support Officers (MSO), an Education Liaison Officer (EDLO) and a Family Liaison Officer (FLO).
