About the organisation
NPAQ promotes the preservation, expansion and good management of national parks in Queensland (https://npaq.org.au). It was established 90 years ago, making it the longest running environmental organisation in Queensland. The Association is a registered charity and deductible gift recipient managed by its volunteer Council (Board).
A number of Committees (including a Governance Committee) inform the work of Council, and the Association employs two permanent part-time staff. Our Council is collegiate and successful, providing real opportunities to make a difference. We are actively engaged in enhancing Queensland’s Protected Area Estate (primarily National Parks), and have built effective relationships with relevant government departments and other stakeholders.
