About QCA

The main aims of the Quinninup Community Association are:

  • To promote and protect the interests of the community

  • To promote and protect the environment

  • To encourage social intercourse between members of the community

Why we have it and what it has achieved in the past.

The QCA was incorporated in 1989, the original task was to prevent logging in the area to the right when you come off South West Highway and turn onto Wheatley Coast Road.  To this end numerous submissions were presented and in 1992 three walk trails were established and in 1994 the Eco module was put in place at the corner of Wallace Road (this structure has since been removed and the information panels erected beside the Post Office).  A nine year moratorium was given which, as good fortune would have it, brought it right up to the time that the area was declared a National Park.​
