COVID-19 restrictions have meant that many meetings in several states have not been meeting in person. Scroll down for the link to Electronic Meetings if, as a result of a meeting search, face-to-face meetings are still marked 'Temporarily Closed'.
Some meeting venues may ask for proof of vaccination before allowing access to the venue. This is an issue outside of Al-Anon’s control. We must always abide by the law and the regulations or procedures that apply to the venues we use. Some groups have negotiated for a responsible person in their group to maintain a register of members' details which could be sighted by the venue if needed.

Please contact your Area Office and the Australian General Service Office (AGSO) if meeting arrangements change so that published lists can be maintained accurately.
FAQs about Al-Anon Family Group meetings.
New to this website meeting search function? Search Tips:
- Find a meeting, click on the meeting name for any extra details to help find the venue
- After the suburb, try adding the state (a suburb can exist in more than one state and it will only find the first location)
Search by Postcode may fail for country locations so please use the town name instead.
Search distance is only 15 km and in some country regions this is not sufficient so please use state-based meeting lists instead.
At Al-Anon Meetings
Members share with each other their experience, strength and hope in applying the Al-Anon principles to their own lives that have been affected by someone else’s problem drinking. Through this exchange, members learn about the disease of alcoholism, and how it affects behaviours in family members.
Al-Anon is not affiliated with any other organisation.
There are over 370 Al-Anon meetings around Australia. Anyone concerned about someone else’s drinking is welcome to attend. Group meetings vary in size from 2 to 20+. If you are physically unable to attend a meeting then our Lone Member service might be of interest to you. Please make contact to talk about this possibility.
Meeting details (venue, day, start time) are updated regularly but occasionally may be out of date, so if you have difficulty locating a meeting then please check with your local office.
