Defence Families of Australia

Defence Families of Australia (DFA) is the official Australian Defence Force (ADF) families advisory body to the Minister for Defence Personnel and Chief of the Defence Force (CDF).

Our organisation sits outside of Defence systems, allowing DFA independence and impartiality to act in the best interests of ADF families.

We are connected to Defence family communities in our regions, and are largely veterans or family of Australian Defence Force members.
