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.
