TTNQ Member Networking Functions

TTNQ understands the key role we play in bringing our industry together and building a stronger region. We invite our members and key industry partners to gather six times a year to network, have a drink and a laugh, and share our collective stories as a region. These events are held on a Wednesday night from 5pm-7pm at a member property.

The host of the event has the opportunity to showcase to our industry what a great show they can put on and to update the gathering with any information they wish to share in a short 5-minute speech. Other speeches on the night include updates from our CEO, Mark Olsen and Chair.

If you would like to host a networking function at your business, please contact our Industry Relations Manager at [email protected] or call 4015 1226

Holy croc-amole 🐊

If there’s one place where spotting crocs is a crowd favourite, it’s Tropical North Queensland! There’s a lot to learn about these prehistoric creatures & around here you don’t just have to read it in a book! 🌿

Catch a croc presentation at one of our awesome wildlife parks, or try a wildlife spotting cruise to safely visit our scaly friends 🌴✨

You might even be lucky enough to spot one in the wild on your own travels, but remember to always be Croc-wise ⚠️

📍 Rinuirru (Lakefield National Park) is home to nine different Aboriginal clans - the Lama Lama and Kuku Thaypan peoples, the Bagaarrmugu, Mbarimakarranma, Muunydyiwarra, Magarrmagarrwarra, Balnggarrwarra and Gunduurwarra clans and some related families.

Looking for some art that rocks? Look no further! 😉

Tropical North Queensland is home to a huge array of breathtaking Indigenous rock art sites, so we thought we’d bring you along to explore some in #Chillagoe ✨ 

There are two publicly accessible Aboriginal art sites here, the Wullumba and the Mundane site (pictured in post). We know Chillagoe is a great destination for all you history buffs, so why not make it a little more special with a trip to see this historic art 👣
