Stay connected with Defence Magazine


Defence Family Matters is a free lifestyle magazine designed for Defence families. In DFM you can find articles celebrating Defence families, advice and tips for managing deployment, family member absence, relocation and posting and other aspects of military life.

The magazine also publishes information on family support services available from Defence and the community, and news about changes in the Defence environment that affect families.

The magazine is sent out three times a year to all ADF members who have one or more dependants and are permanent or on Continuous Fulltime Service. Contributions are welcome from Defence family members, ADF members and community organisations supporting Defence families. For more information on how to contribute, check out the DFM website at
