About Us

Our purpose is assisting people to live the life they want.

At Cootharinga we believe in progress for our communities, and ourselves.

For 70 years Cootharinga has been part of our community, working alongside people with disabilities and their families. Cootharinga North Queensland provides supports and services to a large variety of clients throughout North Queensland.

We work with our clients and communities to capture moments that matter and provide the personalised support that makes a difference.

Our areas of operation extend from Sarina south of Mackay up to Cairns and the Tablelands, west to the gulf country, including Mornington Islands, and Mount Isa. No matter where you are in North, Far North, and North West Queensland, we are committed to providing a range of tailored services that are relevant to your choice and needs

Reach out today to begin or continue your journey – we can’t wait to see where it will take you.
