        150 Years of Australian Football in Queensland

        About Q150

        Despite commonly held misconceptions, Australian football has been played in Queensland for a long time.
        Over 150 years ago the first Brisbane Football Club was formed and since then Australian rules football has been played in the sunshine state, albeit for a brief period in the last decade of the 19th century.

        After over a decade of research, Greg Parker and Murray Bird have released their book ? ¡°More of the Kangaroo¡± ? in December 2019.

        The comprehensive history is over 1100 pages in length and covers the trajectory of the code throughout the state. It includes over 500 images and reveals facts about the evolution of the code at a local level that are little known.

        This book is a local history, detailing the heroics, the controversies, the premierships and the success and failures, from Cairns to Coolangatta. The more recent deeds of teams in the national Australian Football League are not the subject of ¡°More of the Kangaroo¡±. Local heroes and villains, champion teams from Townsville to Toowong, umpires, interstate matches, women¡¯s football and much more are chronicled, described and brought to life.

        After our successful launch in Brisbane on December 11th we will be conducting regional launches throughout Queensland in early 2019.
