The inaugural meeting of the Cairns Branch of SGAP was held on 20th March 1980. Arthur Mousamos was elected Chairman and Jo-Anne Edwards Secretary.

In June 1986, Cairns and Tablelands Branches combined to host a Regional Conference with the theme, Go Native.

The programme took members to various venues and areas around Cairns and the Atherton Tableland. It was followed by an adventurous camp-out excursion to Cape Flattery and Cooktown.
