Regional Community Forums were created in 2019 to strengthen the Queensland Government’s partnership with regional Queensland and to give those living in our regions greater access to government and better opportunities to influence government decision-making. Due to the success of the Regional Community Forums, in 2023 we have expanded the program to the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast.

Community Forums create spaces for government and community stakeholders to have valuable conversations to identify regional priorities and create community-driven solutions.

This work is supported by the Office for Rural and Regional Queensland, ensuring we stay connected with local communities and that Queensland’s regions are front of mind in decision making.

The Queensland Government’s clear focus on the regions ties in with our ongoing commitment to be a responsive government that delivers for all Queenslanders.
