Following the winding up of the Central Queensland Local Government Association in 2013, the need was recognised for a replacement vehicle to enable Central Queensland councils to work together to enhance the economic growth, social capacity and environmental sustainability of our region.

The CQROC held its first meeting in January 2014 and is a voluntary alliance between the collaborative councils.
