Active Lifestyles

Leaving Defence can be isolating, particularly if many of your friends are still in service. It can be hard to make new friends who understand where you've come from and the challenges of transitioning back into civilian life. And yet, having a strong connection to your community is one of the factors that can help you successfully transition.

Our Active Lifestyles events provide opportunities for you and your family to take part in exhilarating activities in the great outdoors, while connecting with fellow members of the Defence family. From abseiling to kayaking – and catering for all abilities – there's something to suit everyone.

Active Lifestyles events are held in various locations across Queensland throughout the year.
