THE Central Queensland Dreamers are seeing visions of success in their inaugural Arthur Beetson rugby league carnival appearance.

The Dreamers women's squad will join seven other women's squads, 32 men's teams and 16 under-15 boys' teams over four days at the Arthur Beetson Memorial Murri Carnival at Dolphin Park in Redcliffe from September 25-28.

Dreamers coach Jason Guthrie had high hopes for the CQ squad and was excited about the development of women's rugby league in the region.

"They're looking good, we just started two weeks ago but they're coming together and are all keen," Guthrie said.

"I think they'll have fun and be competitive. I don't know what the competition is like yet though.

"This is the first time a women's team from Rockhampton has gone down to compete.

"It's definitely good to see the women's league growing. I got a phone call the other day and we might be playing the curtain-raiser for the Legends of League game in two weeks time at Browne Park."

While the side has already attracted 20 local players, Guthrie had put the call out for any interested indigenous girls 16-years-old or older to pull on their footy boots.

"We have about 19-20 so far but ideally we'd like about 25 girls. Any indigenous girls from around Central Queensland," the coach said.

"We're trying to get some fundraising and sponsorship happening as well."
