Major & Regional Events
Our dual World Heritage areas of the Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropics rainforest are an idyllic backdrop for international sporting events like Ironman Asia-Pacific and cultural showcases such as the Cairns Indigenous Art Fair. World-class infrastructure, extraordinary outdoor locations and extensive professional events expertise ensure the successful delivery of major and regional events for positive economic and social returns.
Tourism Tropical North Queensland’s primary role is the marketing and promotion of TNQ in domestic and priority international markets. This can be done by supporting tourism events that are a major and regional event. These can be classified as events that:
- draw visitors outside of the region to visit TNQ, and/or
- encourage visitors to extend their length of stay whilst in the region, and/or
- exponentially enhance their time spent in the region
Your local council can also assist with support for community and civic events. This is not an area that TTNQ can provide support in. Explore Key Contacts for more information on Council Support.
