The Queensland Naturalists’ Club Inc aims to study all branches of natural history, to encourage the preservation and protection of native flora and fauna and their environments. We also focus on publishing worthwhile observations on natural history and record club activities.

Get Involved


The QNC has regular excursions, at least once a month, to areas of natural history interest, mainly in South East Queensland. Visitors are welcome on short excursions but all other events require an active membership status to attend.

These vary from half-day, day or weekend excurions. Each year we also organise a longer excursion (7-14 days) to places further afield. These long excursions have gone to Western and Northern Queensland, Islands on the Great Barrier Reef and even to Tasmania and Lord Howe Island. We have recently developed a Wildlife Survey Group which undertakes fauna and flora surveys.

QNC Club Meetings

Learn about natural history at our meetings with talks presented by specialists from the club or from various scientific institutions, and from members exhibits. Visitors are welcome.

When: Arrive at 7:15 pm for a 7:30 pm start on the third Monday of each month, February to November inclusive.
