Mascot - Birdy McBirdface
The University Mascot was named in a competition open to the general public revealed Birdy McBirdface as the most popular name, a reference to the 2016 social media story where ‘Boaty McBoatface’ lead the online vote to name a £200m research vessel for the UK’s Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). The name was naturally shortened to ‘Birdy’, receiving chants on the sporting field. Birdy’s cheeky personality boosted team spirit, throughout the Northern Uni Games and the Australian Uni Games. Birdy has been featured at events across many CQUniversity campus footprints.
Make sure you say G'Day to Birdy when you see around!
