ADDRESS- 109 Palmerston Drive, Innisfail, QLD, 4860
Backpacks 4 Aussie Kids is a volunteer group (non profit, unincorporated).

We are a group of dedicated people who are working towards giving every child who is placed in foster of kinship care something of their very own. Backpacks and nappybags are filled with essential and personal items for kids going into foster and kinship care in Australia.


We are appealing to local businesses, groups and individuals for assistance in achieving this important mission
through their generosity. Various essential items are urgently needed to fill backpacks for children and
infants placed into emergency foster care. We are also in need of transport to get the bags to all areas of Queensland where they are needed.
