Major & Regional Event Toolkit

TTNQ and our partners offer a toolkit and resources to assist in delivering your event. This includes the planning stages, sponsorship, grants, marketing and promotion. TTNQ does not own or deliver events, but can assist with destination marketing for specific events.


The Queensland Events Guide

Tourism & Events Queensland have designed The Queensland Events Guide to assist organisers throughout an entire event lifecycle, to ensure they are equipped to stage the best event possible.

The TNQ Event Prioritisation Strategy 2015-2020

TTNQ and Cairns Regional Council recognise the efficiencies and advantages of working jointly to develop a regional event strategy that will guide the region. The TNQ Event Prioritisation Strategy 2015-2020 optimises the community, cultural, environmental and economic outcomes associated with the event investment for Cairns and Tropical North Queensland and develops a framework for event-based decision making.

To find out more information about working with Cairns Regional Council, visit the Event Planning Guide section on their website.

Take a dip in a waterfall, explore breathtaking farmlands & catch the sunset when you spend time exploring @CassowaryFalls 🍃✨ Located in the Mossman Gorge section of the Daintree National Park, #CassowaryFalls is a secluded waterfall that tumbles into a cool, pool of pristine freshwater. Surrounded by lush @wettropicsworldheritage listed rainforest, this is the perfect place to refresh & rejuvenate with a swim, or simply enjoy the cool spray of the falls 💦

The falls are found on private property, and can only be visited on tours with @cassowaryfalls 🌴

Time for a quick biology lesson 🧑‍🔬

The Pygmy Seahorse is a master of disguise, able to mirror the textures and colours of the coral they live in 🪸 Since these seahorses are too small to fend off predators, they change colour to mimic their environment and become almost invisible! 😮

Did you know that these guys often spend their entire lives in one particular coral? 🌊🐚
