Advocating for Defence families

Northern Queensland

National Delegate


0418 796 561

Hello my name is Larissa and I joined DFA in late April 2021 as the delegate for Northern Queensland. Since 2018, I have been a part of the military lifestyle and have so far had to live in Canberra and now Townsville as a new mum.

With a background in communications, I’m passionate about how I can use and improve communication to enhance the overall experience of defence families.

It is my aim to attend a wide range of events (potentially with a toddler in tow) and to continue the active presence of DFA across the Northern Queensland regions.

Whether it be to assist with information, act as an advocate or simply be a friendly face to talk to, I’m very much looking forward to meeting the many Defence families of Northern Queensland.
