Welcome to Naval Association of Australia


We seek to provide an active and rich future that requires determined members.
Being a member sustains the legacy of past service and sacrifice.

The NAA pursue four pillars that underpin our mission:

  • Care (welfare) for the diverse and crucial support of Navy and ex-Navy men and women,
  • Commemoration by maintaining the legacy of past service and sacrifice.
  • Navy Cadets by assisting youths to become better citizens through support to the ANC
  • Camaraderie to meet and socialise with like-minded Navy and ex-Navy men and women.

Our aim is to be a dynamic and contemporary organisation supporting the Navy fraternity in a wide range of different ways with Mateship at the core of our ethos.

The Naval Association of Australia (NAA) was established in 1920.   The NAA is the only national organisation with the sole purpose of looking after the interests of serving Navy and ex-Navy men and women.   We believe that

Once Navy, Always Navy

Every member is important to the NAA, the benefit to an individual may not be obvious, however, you will give Voice to Navy in the wider community. The four pillars underpinning our values point to the significance of membership. Compensation, rehabilitation and wellbeing entitlements provided to Navy and ex-Navy men and women today is the result of decades of dedicated work by NAA members.

The NAA is responsible for the HMAS Sydney II Virtual Memorial Website.

Her majesty the Queen’s Platinum Beacon Lighting Ceremony
attended by the NP, Canberra (Thursday 02 June 2022)

It was with pleasure that I accepted an invitation from The Honourable Anthony Albanese MP, Prime Minister of Australia, to attend Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Beacon Lighting Ceremony at Regatta Point Canberra, on Thursday 02 June 2022.

The invitation was extended to our Association as Her Majesty the Queen is our Patron.

The lighting of the beacon coincided with others throughout the United Kingdom and capital cities of the Commonwealth.

More than 3,500 beacons will be lit throughout the United Kingdom, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and UK Overseas Territories, and one in each of the capital cities of Commonwealth countries in recognition of The Queen’s long and selfless service. The beacons will enable local communities, individuals and organisations to pay tribute to her as part of the official Platinum Jubilee Weekend of celebrations from 2nd to 5th June 2022.

Truly an historic and fitting occasion, being the first-time a British Monarch has marked a platinum, 70 years as Sovereign. HM the Queen, Queen of Australia, has served us all in an exemplary manner and we join with all her subjects in the jubilant call, ‘Long live The Queen!’.
