Basically, there are three ways to join the Outdoors Queensland community:

Become a member

Apply today and become a financial member of the Outdoors Queensland community – becoming a member of Outdoors Queensland means you are joining a community of people who enjoy, recreate and/or work in the outdoors.

This collectively amplifies our voice – the voice of the people of Queensland – to ensure that every Queenslander can access the outdoors regardless of their background or capacity – ultimately leading to a happier and healthier Queensland.

Other benefits of becoming a financial member are promotion of your business on your own Member Page (with an exclusive url you can share with your clients and customers), full inclusion in the Activity section of the website (where applicable), and use of the Outdoors Queensland member logo on your website and printed material.

For more information on the benefits and expectations of being an Outdoors Queenslander including referral discounts, go to Benefits and Expectations.

The 2021 upgrade to our membership processing system includes a revised set of member categories and fees. Membership fees are an integral part of helping us help more people across Queensland and keeping the outdoors accessible to everyone.

The application process will guide you through a short series of questions that will identify which category you or your organisation fits best, and the right application form for your category.

The new category structure looks like this:

Please note:

  • Membership fees are to be based on the number of employees engaged in the delivery of outdoor activities (including support staff for outdoor activities), rather than the total number of staff across an organisation.
  • An Affiliate member is defined by the Constitution as ‘Queensland-wide or National member-based organisations that represents a discrete (significant) portion of the outdoor activity spectrum’. The Constitution also notes that ‘two members of the Outdoors Queensland Board must be representatives of Affiliate Members’.
  • Confirmation that your membership application will be received with 5 – 7 working days from when your application and payment have been received – you will receive a password, a certificate, the Outdoors Queensland logo, a link to your new member page (for organisational applications) and an invitation to make full use of the opportunities Outdoors Queensland membership brings.
  • In the very unlikely event your application is turned down when reviewed by the Outdoors Queensland Board, your payment will be fully refunded.
