Defence Family Matters magazine

Defence Family Matters (DFM) is a lifestyle magazine for Australian Defence Force (ADF) members and their families.

Articles celebrate family stories from the Defence community and provide advice on managing relocation, deployment and family member absences.

DFM is published in July and December each year. By default, a hard copy is posted to all fulltime personnel who have dependents and have a street address recorded in the HR system.

Subscription and postage

Those who do not receive DFM by default (i.e. part-time reservists, family members and friends) can subscribe via the form below.

Members can also use the form to modify their default subscription details. This includes changing delivery from hard copy to digital, unsubscribing or requesting delivery to a PO Box.

Note, ADF member delivery street address changes must be updated via a member's home address recorded in the HR system.
