Taree Legacy

Covering the Manning, Great Lakes and Gloucester areas, Taree Legacy supports the families of deceased veterans or those who have become seriously injured due to their recognised service.

Taree Legacy has been operating since 1953 and currently cares for more than 400 beneficiaries.

Legatees are volunteer advisors who are the mainstay of our club. They give freely of their time in order to provide assistance, care and support to our beneficiaries. 

The support provided takes many forms and is adapted to suit individual needs. Assistance may begin by providing support through the period of bereavement and by helping to ensure that the widows receive their entitlements to government benefits.

Taree Legacy can also help to ease financial commitments including assistance with children’s educational expenses. By providing information about the many services available or just being someone to lend an ear, Taree Legacy’s advisors and staff are here to help.

Become part of a proud tradition


Being a Legatee is the most rewarding endeavour of my life. It makes me proud of my country when I see the enthusiasm and compassion volunteers bring to their roles as Legatees. I also see just how much enjoyment and fulfilment they get out of it.
