The North Queensland Natural History Group (NQNHG) has formed to learn, share and enjoy north Queensland’s natural history, and to support the sustainable management of the natural values of the region. NQNHG will share knowledge both among its members and the community at large, including traditional owners, pastoralists, conservation land managers and other interested parties. NQNHG will encourage participation by anyone with a passion for the natural riches of the region.


NQNHG, with ornithologist Ray Pierce, have been successful with a citizen science grant for a 3 year study of a population of Gouldian Finches. The project is well underway, however field work has been curtailed due to the current Covid19 situation. There are still areas where you can help out -  please contact us if you are interested in being involved. Here is the latest update on the project


Our last field weekend to Pinnarendi station west of Mt Garnet, was successful with13 members attending between 1619 November 2019 - results will be published on this site soon. Of course with the current situation all field trips are curtailed for the moment, bu we hope to orga​nise more trips for later in the year and for next year.

Volume 50 (2020) of the North Queensland Naturalist is underway, with two articles available online. Click here for Volume 50 (2020)
