About Buddy Up Australia

Buddy Up Australia is focused on providing connection and purpose for military and emergency services personnel. This includes our emergency services (Police, Fire & Rescue and Ambulance) and our Australian Defence Force (Army, Airforce, Navy).

Founded in Perth, Buddy Up Australia is Not-For-Profit company limited by guarantee with a functioning board of serving and ex-serving personnel. Our board is made up of serving and ex-serving people and every member is currently a volunteer.

Buddy Up Australia operates a national chapter system. Each chapter (team) is run by 1-2 volunteer Chapter Leaders who coordinate activities for their local members based on the need. Currently, there are five operational chapters (Perth, Hobart, Brisbane, Canberra, Shoalhaven and Cairns) with others coming online by the end of the year. Chapters offer fitness activities which include everything from high intensity fitness classes, bike rides and hikes to walking and yoga etc.

Apart from regular fitness activities, Buddy Up Australia benefits our members through purposeful volunteering, social activities, and mental health support. The activities are dependent on the local membership demand.

Our aim is to provide connection and purpose to our members so that they stay mentally and physically well during and after they have served their country and local communities.
