Stanthorpe RSL Services Club
The Stanthorpe RSL Services Club is located in Marsh St in Stanthorpe and provides great meals, entertainment and social space to Stanthorpe residents.
RSL Clubs were created in communities across Australia to provide a venue for current and ex-serve personnel and their families to enjoy a safe and comfortable place to gather, to enjoy each other’s company, and to share a meal and a drink or two. As well, these Clubs serve as a place of remembrance for the contribution and sacrifice of all Australia Defence personnel.
RSL Clubs opened their doors, and their social memberships, to the broader Australia community to enable them to share in these benefits and contribute towards the goal of better facilities and services for veterans. It is the members and visitors to the Stanthorpe RSL Services Club Inc. that make the club a success, and so, in turn, the Club takes a very serious view of its responsibilities to its patrons and the community.
