Since its formation, Queensland has hosted the Australasian Championships four times; 1977, 1982, 1990 & 1998. We also have the privilege of hosting the Championships again in 2005. The Championships are held over five days in early October and bring together the best Men, Women & Youth players from most Australian states as well as New Zealand.

Queensland's Under 18 boys were successful in winning three Australasian Championships in a row in 1998, 1999 & 2000. The Queensland Women's team has had particular success in recent years winning the Australasian Championship in 2002, losing by just a point in the 2003 final and regaining the title again in 2004.

There is a refreshing look about Gaelic Football in Queensland at the moment with majority of members being Australian and some bright new faces on the scene doing very pro-active things for the sport in Brisbane. We are also lucky to have quite a few "originals" still fully involved with promoting and delivering the Gaelic games in our state, as well as throughout Australia. The mix of these old heads from Ireland and new enthusiasm is providing productive and exciting times for Gaelic football in Queensland. We have conducted coaching workshops in Universities and High Schools, established a Summer Night Competition and a High-Schools Competition and will extend on these in 2005. We aim to continue to build on our current status in Brisbane by promoting the great product of Gaelic to more people over the next few years, ultimately integrating Gaelic Football into schools on a primary level so we can maintain a strong and developing player base.
