About Meetings & The Commitee

General Meetings are held every three months at the Fire Shed and the Committee meets between those meetings. No major decisions are taken by the Committee unless a General Meeting is called. Members of the Committee are always willing to talk to residents about problems and as necessary take these to Council members or the State Government.

Residents of Duffys Forest are notified of the agenda of all General and Special Meetings of the Association before each meeting is held, by email, on the Terrey Hills Community Facebook page and the DFRA website.
There are several Subcommittees which deal with particular issues. Currently these include Subcommittees on Equine matters, Community Bridle Trail, Other trails, Weeds & natives, Conservation zones, Waratah Park.


Join the Association so that you can vote on issues. Individual membership is $25 per annum and household (2 people) membership is $50 per annum. All members must uphold the DFRA Constitution and membership is subject to approval.
Express opinions on issues. If you don’t know enough about particular issues, contact any member of the Committee who can inform and update you.
Take an active stand on matters. Don’t wait until there is a major external threat. A succession of minor problems can equally devalue your property and your lifestyle. Act now.

Why Join?

Duffys Forest is home to approximately 125 families and is one of the smallest suburbs in Sydney. A further 50 families live in rural Terrey Hills. Most residents choose to live here for the great lifestyle offered by living in a semi rural area surrounded by the Ku-ring-gai National Park and its beautiful waterways. Through the work of the DFRA , we strive to:
This work is only possible with the support of an active and interested community. Horse facilities, walking trails and weed free waterways benefit the whole community.
Membership fees are $50/year for Household membership (2 voting rights) and $25/year Individual Membership subject to approval. This small cost covers administration fees and public insurance, and ensures that the maximum money raised at our annual Christmas Party can be donated to support the Duffys Forest Rural Fire Brigade.


Every volunteer organisation must have a Constitution which determines the objectives of the organisation. We encourage you to get involved in the local community, so please take a look at our constitution.
