We hope you will visit Kookaburra Retreat either regularly or for specific events/training for members only and ones open to the general public – we are a community centre after all!  You can get involved as much or as little as you like with the association, we find the-more-the-merrier.
Kooka Kids Club (Creche) is available Monday, Thursday and Friday to book in your child/ren to be cared for by qualified nannies (please note parent has to be on the premises or at HMAS Albatross gym). So look out for the booking posts on Facebook.
We have Playgroup on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 9.30am.  So if you have young children and are looking for a reason to go out and play with other mums and their kids, this may be for you.
You will find the 2022 membership form with SDFA’s account details for your $30 EFT payment (internet banking) or you can pay cash when handing in the form when you next visit ‘Kooka’.  For those who aren’t aware if you are a defence spouse and a paid member of SDFA you can sponsor (just a signature) a non-defence person to become a member (eg: a friend you know from school or sporting club).  We have also attached the crèche enrolment form – one form per child is required. These forms can all be filled in when at Kooka. 
Please look out for regular emails and posts with activities, events and training communicated via the public Shoalhaven Defence Families page on facebook with information on how to be involved and forms if required – please become a member of this page if you are not already.
Thanks for your time, hope to see you at Kooka soon.
Kind Regards,
Executive Committee
