The Queensland Walking Alliance is a coalition of partner organisations and individuals who commit to a healthier and more connected Queensland by encouraging and supporting better walking facilities and more walking every day.

The Queensland Walking Alliance is hosted by Queensland Walks.

The purpose of the Queensland Walking Alliance (QWA):

  • To bring together a number of the important stakeholders that relate and interact with walking in Queensland
  • The QWA commenced in May 2020 (after a short delay due to COVID-19)  and will continue as a funded project until October 2021
  • The aim of the QWA is to get more people walking everyday by providing a central voice for walking  (urban, regional and rural) with a focused approach to improving the walkability of Queensland
  • The responsibility of the QWA is to commit to a healthier and more connected Queensland by encouraging and supporting better walking facilities and more walking everyday.

The Queensland Walking Alliance includes:

We thank Hon Minister Mark Bailey, Minister for Transport and Main Roads (TMR), Adam Rogers -Director of Walking and Cycling, TMR, and the TMR Walking team for their time and presentations, and thank all the individuals and organisations who participated in the first QWA meeting.
