The North Queensland Sports Foundation came about via a meeting in Townsville of prominent sports visionaries to address the lack of opportunities for North Queensland sports men and women. The concept of a multi sport event was discussed and this event came to fruition in 1984 as the first North Queensland Games.
The North Queensland Sports Foundation has over 34 years’ experience working with our Local North Queensland Councils and communities providing opportunities to foster and strengthening active participation in the region. The NQSF has developed an effective network over this period that includes Peak Sporting Bodies, all levels of government and corporate partners to deliver our portfolio. The NQSF consistently surveys the landscape for opportunities to maximize outcomes for our North Queensland members.
We are driven to assist our members with the development of sport and increase active participation in regional and remote North Queensland. We provide advocacy, events, bursaries and information to all stakeholders. The Foundation is the only Non-Government agency operating independently in this area of North Queensland.
