Established in 1945, Wilston-Grange Australian Football Club (WGAFC) is one of the oldest clubs in Queensland football. With a proud history of success, winning multiple premierships across Senior Men’s, Women’s, Reserves and Colts Competitions, a multitude of junior premierships and representative players, five Grogan Medallists and players that have progressed through the junior and senior ranks to play at AFL/AFLW level, WGAFC has a history which is the envy of many clubs in south-east Queensland.

Current Status

WGAFC participate in both the QAFL and QAFLW State League competitions which are the premier community football competitions in QLD. They are the focus of significant media and community attention. WGAFC field two senior men’s teams, two senior women’s teams and an under 19 boys’ side, together with two master’s teams (over 35 and over 45), both of which have attracted great support. Our Junior/Youth club provides over 500 young footballers and their families the chance to play and support the game they love each weekend.

Junior Development

Our junior club foster the development of Australian Football in Brisbane by fielding 30 teams from under 8 through to the under 17 age groups, with around 550 players, as well as our popular Auskick and Superstars programs, with 125 players and 50 players respectively. This culminates in a very large number of players, parents, relatives, and friends attending Hickey Park on a regular basis. We pride ourselves on the quality of our junior coaching staff and are very pleased to have ex AFL and many ex WGAFC players as coaches of our junior teams.
