  • promote and protect the environment in our region.
  • encourage social interaction and relationships between members and businesses of the Quinninup Community.
COMMUNITY

The QCA was incorporated in 1989.

The original task was to prevent logging in the areas near the township off Wheatley Coast Road, to this end numerous submissions were presented and in 1992 Nature Walk Trails were established and in 1994 our Eco Tourism module was put in place.

A 9 year moratorium was given on future logging, which, as good fortune would have it, brought it right up to the time that the area was declared a National Park.

SERVICE

Most of the facilities’ in the township were initiated by the QCA.

Services made available to the community such as the library, various sporting facilities including the tennis courts and the gym, community computers and the leasing of old school from the Shire for our community centre.

The QCA was also instrumental in arranging government and corporate services for the community; fire-fighting equipment, TransWA bus service, postal services and mobile telephone and internet services for the town.

How can I help....

All the great things that happen in Quinninup are mostly the result of a few hard working volunteer committee members of the QCA.
Some of these committee members have held positions for many, many years!!
However, some wish to hand over the reigns of their committee positions to a new nominee.

We really do need to have someone already shadowing the work involved in these roles so that the hand over is an easy process.

Let us know if you wish to nominate as soon as possible please!

QCA Committee positions that require filling;

The role of the Secretary is to support the Chairperson, taking minutes and ensuring the smooth functioning of the Committee.

We are also creating a new position for an assistant to the Secretary.

The Treasurer's role is the financial management of the QCA funds, arranging incoming and outgoing payments and to safeguard the finances. Previous accounting or bookkeeping experience would be handy but not essential.

We are also creating a new position for an assistant to the Treasurer.

The Quinninup Fair Co-ordinator has overall management of the annual fair held in October each year.

The fair is the town's major annual event with proceeds from the day funding much of the amenities that we all use and enjoy.

Along with many volunteers the Fair Co-ordinator ensures a great day is held for the town.

The Grants Co-ordinator liaises with various government and non-government bodies such as LotteryWest and submits applications for grants.

The role of the Assistant Secretary is to support the Secretary and provide backup for the position should the Secretary be unavailable.

The role of the Assistant Treasurer is to support the Treasurer and provide backup for the position should the Treasurer be unavailable.
