Welcome to our website. We are dedicated to the welfare of all who serve and have served in defence of Australia.

Every Veteran deserves a lifestyle and better treatment than is currently available. Every Veteran should be able to successfully attain their rights to pensions.

Yet we still receive veterans unaware of their rights, what they may be entitled to, and where and how to apply or enter a claim.

Through your Will, you have the power to help us achieve our goals. Help surviving veterans, and those that follow them, to receive their true entitlements.

Through your Will you have the power to make a difference. Any gift you bequest to our Association, no matter how large or small, will assist a fellow veteran.

Vietnam Veterans Federation NSW Branch HQ, Granville.



To maintain centres of excellence, throughout Australia, providing cost free quality advice and assistance to War Veterans, Peacekeepers and Peacemakers, and all current and former members of the Australian Defence Force, and their families.



We represent former, as well as, current members of the defence force, and their families.

We represent veterans of all conflicts from World War II to Afghanistan, including Peacekeeping and Peacemaking Missions. We also assist War Widows and Widowers.

We have many years experience helping with claims in all of the Military Compensation schemes, with fully trained 'TIP' qualified Pensions officers.

If your initial claim has been unreasonably rejected we have experienced Advocates to prepare and present an appeal to the Veterans Review Board.

Should an appeal to the Veterans Review Board be unsuccessful we can, for entitled veterans, arrange legal representation and legal aid for Administrative Appeals Tribunal hearings.

We offer assistance to families of veterans including War-Widows.

Our qualified Pensions Officers and Advocates are situated throughout Australia, near most major centres, and our Outreach Programs reach most remote areas.


Neither is there any obligation to join our Federation although you would be welcome to do so.

The Vietnam Veterans Federation of Australia (VVFA) and its affiliated partners Vietnam Veterans Peacekeepers & Peacemakers Association of Australia (VVPPAA) is dedicated to the welfare of ALL service and ex-service personnel and their families. We have no other aim. Our organisation is made up of volunteers who chose to help veterans in need. If you are a sick veteran, and you suspect your sickness may have been caused by your war service, we invite you to consult one of our trained volunteers who man our Branches and Sub-Branches throughout all States of Australia.

We rely upon continued membership and your valued donations to keep our offices doors open throughout Australia. Many of our offices have regular fund raising events and/or raffles, so why not attend and give your support where you can. .......READ MORE

Confused about this organisation and other Vietnam Veterans associations ?

The best explanation is that we are the VIETNAM VETERANS FEDERATION of AUSTRALIA INC. We have branches in all States of Australia and the ACT. Our New South Wales branch, located at Granville, is also the Federations Head Office, and is incorporated as the VIETNAM VETERANS PEACEKEEPERS & PEACEMAKERS ASSOCIATION of AUSTRALIA (NSW BRANCH) Inc.

We have no affiliation with the Vietnam Veterans Association of Australia incorporated in Victoria. The St. Mary's Outpost is not part of our Federation. Several years ago we disaffiliated from this body and formed our own FEDERATION, and we were joined shortly thereafter by other States unhappy with the National Council of the VVAA.
