Thank you to everyone who has participated in this consultation. We have had some outstanding ideas sent through and great feedback. We have also had some of you share some stories that demonstrate to us that a portal such as the new Queensland Veteran’s Portal is a much needed tool.
We are currently working through all of your input and looking at how we may implement your ideas and feedback. This will take some time and we expect to see changes and improvements implemented over time. So please check back in on the development of the portal and share ideas and / or feedback as we progress.
Please also share the search tool with any services and organisations you know of that may want to list their service. It is free to list a service on the directory and those listed will show up across a range of data bases so it is a great way for services to reach people and it helps us to ensure we are giving you a wide range of options. Services can list their details by clicking on the button below.

A new Queensland veterans' portal
The Queensland Government is committed to supporting ex-ADF members and their families to find and access support and services. We have developed an online portal to help veterans navigate services available in Queensland. We are currently testing this portal and we are seeking your feedback and ideas.
Our aim is to provide a single, easy to use portal for current and ex-ADF members and their families in Queensland to search for and easily find, the supports, services and information they need. We have developed and are currently trialling this portal and we are seeking your views and ideas on how it could be enhanced.
To trial the portal, just type in what you are looking for and where. For example; Counselling Townsville, ADF housing Cairns, or ADF health services.
If you are a current or ex-ADF member, a family member of current or ex-ADF member, or someone who works with or cares for a current or ex-ADF member, then we want to hear from you.
I liked it. It puts all services to veterans in one place. There doesn’t seem to many RSLs showing in the ESO search. I hope they will sign on soon.
Get more ESOs to sign onto the portal. The public service has cadetships only available to indigenous Australians and most of them lead to full employment. I think QPS should introduce similar cadetships programs for veterans.
Seems a good idea, but I'm unsure why this isn't a Commonwealth project with State-specific links.
I hope there this site doesn't turn into an ARMY site. Too many other site barely mention RAAF and NAVY service.
1. Provide links to the various military rehab programmes.
2. Provide links to the Military pension and payment schemes.
3. No mention of taxi transport subsidies?
A brilliant idea. The information for employment opportunities after leaving the ADF are invaluable- I only wish they existed when I left the Navy.
The section on using the STAR system to address selection criteria is particularly relevant in contemporary recruitment scenarios.
Thank you to the Palaszczuk government for listening to our feedback and launching this great initiative.
Publicity of the launch of this site would lead to more veterans and potential employers utilising and building on this resource to its full potential.
So fr So good, it looks like it will be a great asset to the veteran community when it is fully up and running, I have already shared the site with several other veterans so they can see what is happening and hopefully give their feedback to something that I think is well and truly needed by the veteran community so that they can access information about QLD Govt services and consessions.
It will be a great help once it is fully up and running and the information on it is kept up to date so that Veterans and those looking after them have access to current and usefull information
I often wonder if there is somewhere I could go to get information and updates when relevant. Sign up to a news reel or something of that nature. When looking for work I could get updates and regular information that can provide tips and resources that might assist, then later I could turn off the employment information and sign up for sports or events or the like.
It might work to add a sign up form to the portal page - that might be a start.
