Welcome to the Naval Officers Club website
A group of officers, with a strong RANVR content, founded the Naval Officers Club in 1946, initially to retain and encourage comradeship among both serving and retired Royal Australian Navy officers.
The objects of the club remain unchanged – to preserve and stimulate the spirit of comradeship that has been engendered among naval officers by their close association with the Service, and for this purpose to arrange periodical member reunions.
We are honoured to have the Chief of Navy, currently Vice Admiral Tim Barrett, AO, CSC, RAN as our Patron. In accepting this position, Admiral Barrett wrote:
“It is an honour to be the professional head of the Australian Navy, and I take seriously the responsibility this entails to provide and preserve Navy’s rich history. This responsibility, of course, extends to the men and women who have previously or currently are wearing Navy uniform.
“It would give me much pleasure to accept the position as Patron of the Naval Officers Club. It is through the efforts of organisations such as the Naval Officers Club that our customs and traditions remain very much alive and the debate over our future continues. I trust that all members of the Naval Officers Club continue to feel part of the greater Naval family.”
