As at 2006 the Queensland government, under its commitment to remote locations, has increased its services to Doomadgee, and as at July 2006, eight of 25 Queensland government departments are now represented in Doomadgee. The eight departments are:

Queensland Police Service (nine-officer station), Queensland Corrective Services (two probation and parole officers), Queensland Ambulance Service (one ambulance officer, one paramedic), Department of Education and the Arts, Department of Employment and Training, Queensland Health, TAFE Queensland, Department of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Policy.

Queensland Corrective Services is the latest addition to the Queensland government family in Doomadgee with the permanent appointment of two probation and parole officers. One of them is responsible for offenders' compliance with their orders and prosecuting those who contravene their orders. The other officer is responsible for delivering a host of departmental programs to address the criminogenic needs of offenders and as ordered by the courts. From January 2007, the Doomadgee Aboriginal Shire Council in the area was given full shire status.
