About us - Cairns Legacy

Club history

Cairns Legacy Club received its Legacy Charter on 22 June 1933, however this record of the history of the Club does not begin until 19 years later. A fire in 1963 destroyed the Cairns RSL premises (which also housed the Cairns Legacy office) and with it the Club's records. Attempts to regain copies of valuable records have proven difficult. Cairns Legacy would welcome members of the community who may hold relevant historical information to come forward to help restore some of this history.


Cairns Legacy hold an annual changeover each year in May where the a new committee is voted in by nominations from Club financial members. Currently we have 19 volunteer Legatees.

Cairns Legacy currently cares for 482 widows, 7 school aged Junior Wards, and 1 disabled dependent.

We would like to welcome new members to cairns legacy. We will be inducting new members in the coming months
