About Us

Founded by North Queensland Local Government Authorities, North Queensland Sports Foundation (NQSF) is a unique and dynamic organisation that connects North Queensland resources and communities to increase physical activity and promote health and wellbeing across Northern Queensland. 

Move It NQ was developed by the North Queensland Sports Foundation in 2018 as a strategy to improve the health and wellbeing of Northern Queensland communities and support healthier and active lifestyles through the delivery of evidence-based physical activity programs. 

Move It NQ takes a place-based approach to program delivery and provides members of the community with access to low or no-cost physical activity programs that are appropriate, inclusive and accessible. 

The North Queensland Sports Foundation has successfully established partnerships with Northern Queensland PHN, Western Queensland PHN and 24 Local Government Areas (LGAs) across the Northern Queensland region to deliver Move It NQ.
