Geckos is a place for Defence members, partners and families to build friendships, socialise and access information to assist with the challenges of a Defence lifestyle.  The centre staff are familiar with the challenges for Defence members, partners and families due to the absence of members from home and the mobile lifestyle associated with Defence Force service.

 

The centre is located in Building 501 on Lavarack Barracks.  Entry is on Mansford Drive and is signposted from the main gate of the barracks.

 

Geckos is open to all, Monday to Friday, 9:00am to 4:00pm.  The centre is available outside of these hours for other functions, however, bookings are essential.

 

Geckos hosts a number of events and activities for Defence members, partners and families and the facilities include an Internet Cafe, tennis court, children's playground, outdoor patio area and air conditioned spaces.

 

A diverse range of groups utilise the centre to provide services and activities.  Some of these include playgroup, Mums 'n' Bubs, wargaming and craft.

 

Details of activities and events at the centre are available through the Northern Services Courier Online, the centre's website, our FaceBook group, regular mail outs, the 'Gone Troppo' newsletter (Defence Community Organisation) and the centre's noticeboards.  Defence members, partners and family members are encouraged to contact centre staff to be added to the email list and to the FaceBook group for centre updates.
