Curra Swans were formed in 1990 through a merger between erstwhile Townsville AFL rivals South Townsville (six premierships) and Currajong (nine, including five in succession between 1975 and 1979). The Swans themselves have, to date, claimed three flags, all of which were won consecutively between 1997 and 1999. Fortunes during the 21st century have generally been modest including several wooden spoons. The 2019 season was an exception as the side qualified for the finals and eventually came third. This was a prelude to a highly meritorious 2020 season which culminated in a seven point grand final victory over Thuringowa Bulldogs. The Swans won all ten matches contested in what, because of the coronavirus pandemic, was an abbreviated competition. It was an excellent year all round for the club as the reserves also went top while the women's team was beaten in the grand final.
