Welcome

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

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 centre 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 Kooka Kids Club on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays at a very low cost to members

Regular fundraising events are held to offer subsidised rates to members.

New faces are welcome, so why not come along and see the wonderful range of activities provided, or call to find out more information.
