NRL Cowboys House provides supported accommodation for 50 young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students from remote communities in north-west and Far North Queensland, enabling them to access quality secondary education options in Townsville.

2018 marks the House’s second year of operation, and sees the facility welcome an additional 25 young men into the cohort for the start of the 2018 school year, joining an existing group of House Brothers who completed their inaugural year in 2017.

Officially opened in March 2017, the House is a purpose-designed and culturally respectful facility providing life-changing opportunities for some of the most disadvantaged students in the country.

Managed by the Cowboys Community Foundation, the charity arm of the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys, NRL Cowboys House is a joint initiative between the National Rugby League, North Queensland Cowboys, the Queensland Government and the Australian Government.
