What We Do
NPAQ advocates for the protection, expansion, effective management and presentation of national parks.
NPAQ offers a growing Kids in National Parks program, a bushwalking and outdoor recreation activity program, and provides opportunities to participate in community conservation and Citizen Science projects.
NPAQ supports the development and application of scientific and professional knowledge in advancing national parks and nature conservation.
Since 1930, the National Parks Association of Queensland (NPAQ) has bought together people who share an appreciation for national parks and the vital role they play in conserving our unique natural environment.
It is only with your continued support that NPAQ can continue our work towards the expansion and better management of national parks in Queensland. Thank you for renewing your membership with NPAQ.

NPAQ aims to offer a range of bushwalking and other activities for our members, as well as guests/members of the public. Activities may include social events, half day, full day, overnight walks, birdwatching, canoeing, camps, extended excursions, citizen science events and national park projects.
Become a member and participate in recreational activities, or attend member only camps, excursions and events.
