Far North Queensland Regional Organisation of Councils

The Far North Queensland Regional Organisation of Councils (FNQROC) was established in the 1980s and represents 13 member Councils from Hinchinbrook, north to Cook and west to Carpentaria in Far North Queensland.  This area covers 1,235 km of the eastern seaboard with a land area of 319,063 sq km and a population of approximately 273,000. Gross regional product is $14,850 million.

FNQROC is currently the largest ROC in Queensland by way of council membership.  Our role is to foster cooperation and resource sharing between Councils and effectively advocate regional positions and priorities.  In doing this we also work closely with regional partners and stakeholders.

The FNQROC's Economic Profile presents economic information that enables you to describe the area's role within the broader economy, explore options for economic development and promote the area's strenghts.  The FNQROC's Community Profile provides demographic analysis for the region and Local Government areas based on results from the 2016, 2011, 2006, 2001, 1996 and 1991 Censuses of Population and Housing. The profile is updated with population estimates when the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) releases new figures.
