We want you at the Returned & Services League of Australia, Queensland Branch, Maleny Sub Branch Inc.
Perhaps you have thought many times of joining the RSL but have been turned off by those big, poker machine filled clubs operating in so many areas these days. You probably remember the good old days of the RSL Memorial Hall and the “mateship” and camaraderie that prevailed within. Then, despair no more, for you have found RSL Maleny Sub Branch and we do not have the poker machines, but we do have a limited liquor licence for special events.
We operate from an old-fashioned memorial hall set amongst the rolling green hills of the Blackall Ranges on the Sunshine Coast Hinterland in Queensland.
