The Womens Centre is a feminist community based not for profit organisation that provides a range of support services to women and children.

The Womens Centre was established in 1986 through the tireless work and dedication of a small group of feminists. Their hard work and dedication paid off when in mid-1986 the Womens Information & Referral Centre, as it was then known, was incorporated.

From small beginnings of providing information, support and self-help groups in a shop front at Rusty’s Bazaar to a thriving organisation offering a range of programs with offices in both Cairns and Atherton. Today our professional staff team provide support services that cut across the sectors of housing, violence against women and child protection.
