Service Residences

Service Residences (SR) are the main form of housing we offer Defence Members and their families. These properties are located in proximity to Defence bases and offices throughout Australia and are generally provided to Members With Dependants (MWD).

Learn about the area you're posting into on the Defence Community Hub.

Policy relating to Service Residences (SR) is determined by the Department of Defence and is outline in the Defence Pay and Conditions Manual.
