From 1959, when it was known as Camden Park Progress Association, the Arana Hills District Progress Association was based in the Hills District of the current Moreton Bay Regional Council in southeast Queensland. In 1962 the Association began publication of a monthly newsletter "The Arana Hills District Adviser", which continued until December 1991.

The Progress Association no longer exists as a separate entity, since 2000. Accumulated funds were eventually transferred to Ferny Hills Progress Association.
