Sub Branch History

The Centenary Suburbs RSL Sub-branch was formed in July 2000 with 21 members. The first formal general meeting was held on 31st August 2000. The Sub-branch operates out of offices at the Jindalee Bowls Club, 233 Sinnamon Road, Jindalee 4074 and currently has an active and friendly membership of around 120. The 2011 Brisbane River floods completely submerged the Sub-Branch offices. Members worked quickly to evacuate all electronic equipment, documentation and furnishings to Council premises out of flood reach before the inundation.


Information for Members

Meetings are held on the last Thursday of each odd month at 7p.m. in the Bowls Club meeting room.

Membership Entertainment

Although the Sub-branch does not operate Service Club facilities, our Entertainment Officer ensures members and their spouses/partners can enjoy regular and varied activities including dining out night, bus trips, boat cruises, and organized visits to places of interest.


Local Community

The Sub-branch is active in the local community and is a strong supporter of the local schools through participation in educational projects and involving the schools in the ANZAC Day Service.


Memorial Gardens

The Sub-branch works closely with the Brisbane City Council and the local Ward Councillor in discharging its responsibilities as custodian of the Centenary Suburbs War Memorial Gardens, the centre pieces of which are the War Memorial Stone, a “Courage Track” commemorating the campaigns in which Australian Defence Force and other Peace Keeping personnel have served, and a “Wall of Remembrance” in honour of deceased ex-service and other eligible personnel who resided in the Centenary Suburbs. Lights highlight the major elements of the memorial at night and the Australian flag is flown 24 hours per day.


Wall of Remembrance

The Sub-branch administers applications for the placement of memorial plaques upon the Centenary Suburbs War Memorial Gardens Wall of Remembrance. Full details of eligibility criteria are available from the Sub-branch Secretary.
