What is the Ken Bromley Association ?
The Ken Bromley Association is setup to provide holidays on the Gold Coast for wounded service personnel and their families.  A wounded serviceperson is any serving or past serviceperson who has physical or psychological issues and could use an all-expenses paid holiday on the Gold Coast.  Many of our recipients have been Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) sufferers who could benefit from a holiday.
This scheme and its associated Trust account is administered by the Rotary Club of Gold Coast.
  1. How did the Ken Bromley Association start ?

    The Ken Bromley association had its origins at the time of the Vietnam War when a Gold Coast Rotarian, Ken Bromley, who was an ex-serviceman passed away and left his estate to be administered by Rotary for the purposes of providing holidays for service personnel. This has evolved into the Ken Bromley Association today.
  2. Who administers the Ken Bromley Association’s funds ?

    Members of the Gold Coast Rotary Club Inc administer the association through a dedicated volunteer member’s committee.
  3. Who is eligible ?

    Any qualified serviceperson, either currently serving or a past member of the defence forces and their accompanying families or carer.
  4. What does the Ken Bromley Association pay for ?

    The Ken Bromley Association pays for airfares and/or travel expenses to come to the Gold Coast, all accommodation, admission to local theme parks and a generous daily allowance for living expenses. Essentially, there is no cost to the serviceperson for the holiday.
  5. Does the Ken Bromley Association work with major organisations?

    Yes, the Ken Bromley Association works with groups such as Soldier On, Mates 4 Mates, Open Arms (Vietnam Vets), Service Personnel Anglican Help Society (SPAHS).
  1. Can I approach the Ken Bromley Association directly ?

    Yes, you can contact the association direct. You do not need to go through any of the above mentioned organisations.
  2. Where do we stay ?

    You will stay on the Gold Coast at a mutually agreeable location. For example, some people with young children prefer the tourist area between Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach. Others looking for a quieter area might prefer the Southern Gold Coast areas between Burleigh Heads and Coolangatta.
  3. Will I have any obligations?

    No there are no obligation on your part other than to enjoy the holiday! You may like to take part in a social gathering organised by the Rotary Club but there is no obligation to do so and you are free to do your own thing on your holiday.
