The Australia Indonesia Youth Association in Queensland was founded mid 2012, and aims to build a network of youth who are passionate about the Australian/Indonesian relationship through facilitating various networking and social events.

We are currently affiliated with various institutions such as the University of Queensland, Griffith University, Australian Catholic University, Queensland University of Technology and University of the Sunshine Coast, on the Sunshine Coast. Through these institutions, we have established regular language exchanges with local Indonesian students.  We focused towards facilitating exciting events which involve professional networking, informative seminars and socialising activities.

If you have any questions or queries, you can also send an email to qld@aiya.org.au.
