Brisbane North

The Brisbane North Branch of QJA encompasses most of the city suburbs on the northern side of the Brisbane River. The Branch's region is contained on the south by the River, on the east by the Bay, on the west by the Western Suburbs Branch and on the north by the South Pine and Hornibrook branches.

Meetings of the branch are held five times per year during the months of February, April, July, September and November at the Brisbane City Council library at 79 Evelyn Street, Grange. The Annual General Meeting (AGM) is held in July each year immediately after the July ordinary meeting.
