Legacy.png
 

In 1923 Legacy made a promise to help veterans’ families carry on with their lives after the loss or injury of their loved one.

It was a simple promise that Legacy keeps today; providing the same stability, guidance and assistance that a partner would normally provide to his or her family.

Today, Legacy supports 48,000 partners and children of veterans who gave their lives or health serving our country.

Our work can mean a child gets an education and a fair go, a widow is not disadvantaged and alone and a family is not torn apart by the effects of Post-Traumatic Stress or other physiological injuries.

Since the Legacy promise was made by a soldier to his dying mate in the trenches of WW1 “To look after the missus and the kids” Legacy has supported Australian Defence Force families in times of great need.

 MEDIA PARTNERS


POA.png     

The Paradise Outdoor Advertising (POA) story began in the booming tourist town of Airlie Beach more than thirty years ago.  When an enterprising sign-writer named Phil James was asked by a local business owner if he knew of any billboard sites nearby.

When he couldn't find any, Phil took it upon himself to knock on the door of a nearby landowner who agreed to rent him some land.  After a trip to the council and fabrication of a billboard made of coppers logs...the rest is now history. 

POA finds itself playing the role of pioneer again, this time in the digital advertising space. Clean digital advertising signs that work day and night at regional airports and shopping precincts carry the POA name, whilst delivering the last word to tourists, workers, and shoppers.
