The Track and Field competition in Southern Queensland is usually conducted from October through to March/April, culminating in the AMA National Championships which are held over the Easter long weekend each year with the host state changing each year on a rotational basis, Queensland will host the Nationals again in 2011. In Northern Queensland the Track and Field season is conducted during the Winter months to escape the higher Summer temperatures and humidity.
