Buddy Up Australia connects current and former serving military and first responders, and their immediate families to their communities through physical fitness, social activities and purposeful volunteering.

Whether you are still serving or are transitioning to civilian life, Buddy Up Australia provides you with a continued sense of identity, connection and purpose. We’re here to help our community thrive and feel the support and inspiration of being part of our tribe.

The effects of leaving the service can impact both physical and mental health and for some it is a big adjustment to life after service. We want to keep our buddies in the ‘well zone’ of mental and physical health.

Buddy Up Australia offers a way for people who have served their country, either domestically or overseas, to connect with like-minded people and feel that sense of purpose again. That’s through physical fitness, social connection and volunteering for worthwhile projects.

Founded in Perth, our goal is to run chapters Australia-wide which meet the needs of serving and ex-serving personnel just like us (police, fire, ambulance and military). Let’s keep our buddies in the well zone.
