Northern Queensland Legacy

Northern Queensland Legacy cares for the dependants of veterans who have given their life or health during or as a result of their service in the Australian Defence Force.

Northern Queensland Legacy cares for approximately 650 beneficiaries in the region.

Our programs are focused on reducing social isolation and financial disadvantage and building a strong supportive Legacy community.

With an office in Townsville, Northern Queensland Legacy has strong links in the community, particularly with ex-service organisations which support local veterans.

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.
