Our History

The Tewantin Noosa RSL & Citizens Memorial Club was formed on 21 September, 1981 and had its roots in the area known as the Diggers Bar.

The Club acknowledges that the Sub Branch contributed to its establishment by way of fundraising and historically provided financial assistance to the Club which included rent-free accommodation for five years.
