QACC Bringing together the African Community in QLD

African-Australians contribute so much to this great state of Queensland. According to history, people of African descent first arrived on Australia’s shores with the first fleet in 1787. Even before federation in 1901, Africans came as skilled sugar workers who significantly supported Queensland's sugar industry. Since then African-Australians have continued to make enormous contributions to Queensland in many sectors such as business, sport, politics, medicine, law, engineering, the arts and entertainment. Others are excelling as community leaders among other portfolios in government, non-government organisations and the private sector.

Queensland African Community Council

At QACC, we’re an organisation dedicated to recognising the many contributions that African-Australians have made to Australia. We recognise that many African-Australians have made many tremendous contributions to Australian society and culture in the fields of business, sports, law, engineering, the arts and entertainment, politics and more. We believe that it is very important for the African-Australian community to recognise and celebrate these achievements as we are a part of Australia and have been a fundamental part of its history. We believe that this is a very important thing for us to do, as we believe that it is important for 
African-Australians to come together to form a strong community bond.
