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. Please contact us if you are interested in being involved. Here is the latest update on the project
