Welcome

Welcome to the Shoalhaven Defence Families Association (SDFA) website.

Here you will find information about the association, upcoming events, different groups and programs as well as forms and information sheets.

The SDFA is a not-for-profit organisation set up to bring fun, friendship and support to defence and civilian families in the Shoalhaven and surrounding areas.

The association is managed by a Coordinator in conjunction with a volunteer Committee as well as members. They come together each week (during school terms) to run activities such as Playgroup, craft groups, Courses and Training. These activities and more are run at the Association’s community house Kookaburra Retreat (Kooka), which is located on Canberra Drive (off Albatross Road) just outside of HMAS Albatross.

The SDFA employ the South Coast Nannies agency to operate our crèche on Thursdays and Fridays at a very low cost to members.

We have regular pot luck dinners, ladies nights in and out, bake sales and participate in community fundraising events.

We love new faces, so why not come along and see the wonderful range of activities we provide, or give us a call to find out more information.

It is important to note that although priority is given to Defence families, the SDFA welcome and encourage the wider community to use the facilities.
