The Minister for Defence Personnel, the Hon Darren Chester MP, and Senator for the ACT, the Hon Zed Seselja, announced on 16 May 2018 that the Government will be relocating Defence Housing Australia (DHA) from its head office in Barton to the town centre of Gungahlin by March 2022. The move will also include the relocation of the ACT Regional Office.

All aspects of the relocation will be managed by DHA. The process will begin by DHA going to market this year to assess potential sites for tenancy. This will be done as soon as practicable.

Details will be made available as the process progresses and information sessions will be made available as part of the procurement process.

This website will be updated when information becomes available and the relocation process is developed further.

For further information, the point of contact at DHA is Mr Shane Nielsen on (02) 6217 8410 or shane.nielsen@dha.gov.au
