The WBAQ maintains an extensive library under the custody of librarian Mac Finch. The library contains books on a wide range of subjects related to the design, building and use of wooden boats; boating in general; and other related topics. There is also a wide range of magazines including WoodenBoat, Classic Boat, and many others. A limited number of subjects are available on CDs or DVDs. Library items may be borrowed by members at monthly meetings. A record is kept of borrowings, and members are expected to return them within a reasonable time of one to two months. A list of books contained in the WBAQ library is available here.


Our ‘messabouts’ sub-committee organises regular events ‘on the water’ in a range of locations to suit a wide variety of different boats. These are held on Moreton Bay,  Brisbane River, Lake Cootharaba or other lakes and creeks around Brisbane.

As an association we participate on various regattas and other events organised by other groups. These typically include Bribie Island, Caloundra, Tweed Heads, Flinders Day (Coochiemudlo).


We participate regularly in a range of shows and exhibitions. Examples include: The Working With Wood show, the Brisbane Boat Show, Maleny Wood Expo
