OUR HISTORY

North Queensland Club was established on the 24th June, 1885, as a haven for literary and professional gentlemen. Mr. R. L. Jack was elected the first President of the Club, and His Excellency the Honorable William Wellington Cairns KCMG, Governor of Queensland, was elected the first Patron of the Club, prompting successive Queensland Governors to hold the office of Patron. The Club Rules were based on those of the similar Yorick Club in Melbourne. The Club was originally known as the Gordon Club in honor of the famous Australian poet, jockey, and politician, Adam Lindsay Gordon, but in 1888, after a lease was arranged at Denham House, the site of the current Clubhouse, debate commenced around proposed name changes to either the Townsville Club or North Queensland Club.
On 15 January 1891, the Club formally became the North Queensland Club, and on 4 February 1898, the Club members resolved to fully purchase Denham House on the site where the Club presently stands. Membership was initially only open to gentlemen, but in 1996 membership was opened to women.

The Club proudly continues to provide an exclusive meeting place for like minded people across North Queensland to discuss the important issues of the day and to plan for the future of their businesses, their professions, their communities, and themselves.
