About Us

A United Voice for all Africans and friends of Africa in Queensland 

Queensland African Communities Council (QACC) is a not-for-profit umbrella organisation for more than 63,000 African individuals and communities across Queensland. 

Established in 2003, we have continued to be a united voice that facilitates and supports collective development while encouraging each African community and individual to advance their culture, skills and business. 

We acknowledge that our journeys to Australia are very diverse; some from refugee backgrounds, skilled immigrants, family reunions and international students. What we have in common, however, is our rich cultural diversity, skills and innovation as well as a culture of working hard.

The rational for establishing QACC was in our communities’ recognition that African Australians working collectively on the issues and opportunities we have in common and promoting our capacity and strengths to fully participate in Queensland was the best way to build our communities. 

We appreciate and support each and everyone in our community to access better opportunities, enjoy the wonderful quality of life that Australia provides us and continue to be productive members of the Australian family.

That’s why we are winners of multiple awards, including the prestigious 2013 Queensland Multicultural Award in the Not-for-Profit Community Organisation-Greater Brisbane.

  • Working towards African Australian communities that are united.
