Sub Branch History

Oakey RSL Sub-Branch is an incorporated body with an integral Club that attracts a large social population from both the surrounding area and visitors from near and far who enjoy the atmosphere and the delicious menu items available seven days a week.

The Sub-Branch was chartered on ANZAC Day 1934 and has been active ever since with current membership of about 250 Service and ex-Service personnel. The Club has an active membership of about 3000.

The Sub-Branch encourages and appreciates the involvement of the local community by their attendance at ANZAC Day, Vietnam Veterans’ Day and Remembrance Day.

Members of the Sub-Branch proudly interface with all schools in the local area, the local Men’s Shed, McLean Care CWA House and McDonald House Nursing Home as well as the Army Aviation Centre and local Australian Air Force Cadet Squadron all of whom support the RSL in its endeavours with the community.
