This community was originally established near Point Parker by the Brethren sect as a mission and later moved south to its present location close to the Nicholson River waterholes.

Doomadgee has an Alcohol Management Plan (AMP). AMPs aim to reduce alcohol-related violence.

AMPs vary from community to community. They include alcohol restrictions, home brew bans and dry place declarations which operate within a defined boundary, known as a 'restricted area'. These strategies set the quantity and type of alcohol you may possess in the restricted area.

Penalties apply for possessing or attempting to bring illegal alcohol into a restricted area.

To find out more about AMPs for each community, visit the Department of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and Multicultural Affairs web site.
