The Queensland Sangha Association Inc is an association of Buddhist monks and nuns (the Buddhist Sangha) incorporated in Queensland since 2007. Membership is open to all monks and nuns belonging to every tradition including Mahayana, Theravada and Vajrayana. There is no membership fee. House holders who support the Sangha may become members and carry out executive duties under the general direction of the Sangha. A committee of management is responsible for the operations of the association.

The association serves as a reference point for the public and the government in regard to Buddhism as a religion.

QSA provides a multitude of services to monks and nuns and to the institutions that look after them such as monasteries, nunneries and temples. Services are also available for all other Buddhist groups. The services currently being offered by the QSA include:

Research, education and training
