How to get involved

The Queensland Government is committed to reframing the relationship with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Queenslanders. The Path to Treaty is a commitment to begin the journey towards negotiated treaties with First Nations Queenslanders.

Let’s start the conversation

We are inviting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Queenslanders, and members of the wider Queensland community, to submit their comments, opinions and ideas about a treaty or treaties.

By getting involved and having your say you will be part of the process, allowing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Queenslanders and non-Indigenous Queenslanders to move forward together towards a shared future—your views will help us decide what this shared future might look like.

You can share your views and get involved by:

  • Completing the online survey on the Get Involved website 
  • Preparing a written submission
  • Attending a face-to-face community consultation session

Path to Treaty community consultations will be held in October to 6 December 2019.

Register your interest in upcoming consultation sessions in your local community.
