The original Anzac Lodge was built by the Townsville Branch of the RSL Women’s Auxiliary in 1988. This original building was refurbished into much needed Welfare offices for the Townsville Sub Branch welfare officers in 2000 and five new units subsequently constructed on this site. In 2008 another three units were constructed.
The purpose of these units is to provide accommodation for out of town returned and services personnel and their families who have a requirement to stay in Townsville to receive medical treatment and/or welfare purposes. It is with this in mind that priority for accommodation is given to financial members of the Returned & Services League of Australia who have a need for accommodation in Townsville for medical and/or welfare purposes.
There are eight (8) units available. The bed configuration of the units is:
|Unit 1||One Queen bed and one single bed|
|Unit 2||One double bed and one single bed|
|Unit 3||One double bed and one single bed|
|Unit 4||One double bed and one single bed|
|Unit 5||Two single beds|
|Unit 6||One queen bed and one single bed|
|Unit 7||Three single beds|
|Unit 8||One queen bed and one single bed|
