Welcome to Albury

While Albury-Wodonga is often referred to as one place, they are in fact two separate cities divided by the Murray River on the NSW-Victorian border. Located only seven kilometres apart, the cities have a close relationship. The twin cities offer a country atmosphere combined with a cosmopolitan feel. Rich in history and natural beauty, the welcoming community, diverse culture, fine dining and contemporary attractions offer something for everyone. Looking for information on Wodonga?

Housing assistance review

The annual review of housing assistance for 2019 has been completed by the Department of Defence, with the new rates now published in Online Services. The annual review of service residence and rental allowance contributions involved assessing the national average rent for Defence houses in each rent band, which has resulted in contributions being recalculated based on actual rent changes.

Director Military Conditions and Housing Policy, Derek Cox said providing housing assistance to ADF members was a longstanding policy. "The annual review is undertaken to ensure the Defence requirement of sharing the national cost of housing with members on a 50/50 basis is met each year," Mr Cox said. "The rent band method offers transparency for calculating contribution increases based on actual rental increases rather than forecasts."

Member contributions for living-in accommodation will be adjusted in line with the September 2018 rents and utilities subcomponents of the consumer price index. Casual meal rates and the fortnightly meal contribution will also be reviewed to ensure any revised rates are based on the reasonable recovery of actual national average costs incurred by Defence in providing meals.

The new rates will be reflected in members' salaries in February 2019.
