History

Initially VVAA  (Vietnam Veterans) NT Rural Sub Branch, incorporated in 2001, our priority was to provide support and assistance to the Vietnam veteran community.

Over the course of time we recognised the need to assist younger veterans and their families and changed the VVAA NT Sub Branch constitution to allow membership to all veterans.

As a reflection of this, members felt that a name change would reflect the nature of our membership, so in late 2017 we became Veterans Australia NT. The history of beginning as a Vietnam veterans group will always be valued and remembered.
