About DHA

‘DHA’s purpose is to deliver housing and related services that support the operational, recruitment and retention goals of the Australian Defence Force.’

Barry Jackson

Managing Director

For over 30 years, DHA has provided housing and related services to support Defence members and their families. We build, buy and lease homes across the country and manage a portfolio of more than 19,000 properties. We currently have a residential development program valued at approximately $3.6 billion.


We have a long-term commitment to the communities we build and strive to set the benchmark in innovation and sustainable design. Our developments go beyond bricks and mortar—we build healthy, vibrant communities for Defence families. Properties that are surplus to our needs are sold on the open market to everyday homebuyers and investors.
