On the 12th February 2010, the NEW ZEALAND SUB-BRANCH IN VICTORIA, was officially welcomed to their new home at Caulfield RSL.
This was a momentous occasion for the NZ Sub-Branch, as we have not had an official home for some years. Our original charter was signed on 25th April 1949, with an updated charter signed on 27th April 1953.
The Caulfield RSL has now become the only true "ANZAC" RSL in Victoria.
The Caulfield RSL threw their support behind the NZ Sub Branch, and erected a flagpole to permanently fly the New Zealand flag alongside the Australian one.
The Wall of remembrance at the Club will be updated to include the NZ Defence force logo when it is rebuilt in 2018/19.
Thanks to Caulfield RSL Committee and members and the (then) NZ Consul General, Rob Hole.
The NZRSL Sub Branch Victoria has a Facebook group for sharing news, views and information.
Any questions about NZRSL, about membership, and about our activities should be posted on this group and a committee member will respond.
Membership of the NZRSL Sub Branch and membership of this Facebook Group is open to all New Zealand ex-servicemen and women, to their families, and to all New Zealanders living in Victoria.
Australians are most welcome to apply for membership and to join us. The welfare of our ex-servicemen and women and their families is our main mission. We are co-located and share clubrooms with the Caulfield RSL at 4 St Georges Rd, Elsternwick.
The club is a great venue for New Zealanders to get together. We meet several times a year and hold major events around Waitangi Day, Remembrance Day and ANZAC Day.

It is with great pleasure that we announce the launch of the new Victorian Maori Wardens Inc Website.
The website allows us to connect with all our communities and people (wherever they maybe), share our culture and kaupapa (purpose) and show the mahi (work) we do in our communities.
It also allows for online membership applications and provides public access to the VMW governing documents i.e. Constitution, Strategic Plan and Policies.
