The Far North Queensland Regional Organisation of Councils (FNQRoC) is a well established representative organisation for the region. The ROC has been involved in QWRAP since 2012 with participation including Cassowary Coast, Cairns, Etheridge, Croydon, Cook, Douglas, Mareeba and Tablelands Councils. More of the surrounding councils are also participating on the ROC which now covers a very large area. A key challenge is the number of councils involved in designing collaborative activities. A part time QWRAP coordinator has been driving collaboration on water and sewerage issues in the region since 2014 and the ROC had established joint processes for water-related procurement prior to that date.
