IAFQ organises various events and activities throughout the year, from major annual events like our International Adoption Day and Mapleton Retreat, to more frequent meet ups like Chat ‘n’ Play days and the MOVEnSHAKE program.
International Adoption Day
International Adoption Day is an annual cultural event in Brisbane, where the adoption community celebrates adoption and the difference it has made to our lives. International Adoption Day 2017 was held on Sunday 30 July. Check back soon for the 2018 date.
Mapleton Retreat is an annual camp, held for five days in January, to give adoptive families the chance to make and renew friendships over an extended period in a safe environment. The retreat is held at the Queensland Conference and Camping Centre about 90 minutes north of Brisbane.
Chat ‘n’ Play
Chat ‘n’ Play is a fun and informal way to seek friendship and support for adoptive parents and their little ones. Meet-ups are usually held monthly on a Monday morning, alternating around some of the great parks that we have in South East Queensland.
