YMCA Brisbane

Often when people think of the Y, they think of their local gym, hostel or even the Village People song! What few people may actually know is that the Y has been active in Queensland for more than 150 years.

Did you know that the Y was instrumental in the development of the Red Cross and Father’s Day? Or that the Y invented basketball, volleyball, softball and racquetball?

The YMCA in Queensland not only runs fitness and recreation centres, a hotel, and pools, but also child care centres. Camping, Queensland Youth Parliament, OSHC centres, vocational schools, community centres, youth mentoring, school’s breakfast program, affordable housing, meals for the homeless and much, much more!

Wherever the Y is, we strive to make a positive difference by providing each and every person the opportunity to be healthy, happy and connected.

The Y’s ability to positively impact people’s lives, strengthen communities and respond proactively to today’s biggest social challenges is significant, with its diverse programs and services delivered to communities across Queensland.
