Burleigh Heads Sub Branch Inc.

Introduction

The Burleigh Heads RSL Sub Branch is located at the Soldiers Memorial Hall, in 6th Avenue, Burleigh Heads, between the Gold Coast Hwy and the Esplanade.

Our Sub Branch is not supported by a social club, so we don't offer dining, bar or poker machine facilities. However, we do offer a warm welcome to veterans from the local area and visitors to our Veterans Social days and Commemorative Services.

Burleigh Heads Sub Branch is part of the Gold Coast District of RSL Queensland.

A place where people can meet, socialise and be entertained as a social and wellbeing hub of the community.

 

History

Since it was founded in 1939 and the opening of our Soldiers Memorial Hall in 1956, Burleigh Heads RSL Sub-Branch has been an integral part of the history, culture and community on the Gold Coast.

From our earliest years, we’ve been providing assistance and social connection to local ex-service men and women and the broader Burleigh Heads community.
