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 a welcome from our Industry Relations Manager, Georgie Sadler, an update from our CEO, Mark Olsen and Chair, Ken Chapman.

Is it a possum? Is it a monkey? No, it’s a climbing kangaroo! 🦘🌴 

@tropicalnorthqueensland is home to @australia’s only two species of tree kangaroos - the Lumholtz’s & the Bennett’s tree kangaroos 🌿☀️ These furry faces are notoriously elusive & difficult to spot, even more so because of their solitary nature. Males are known to be aggressive to others entering their territory but, they tend to hang out in the canopy & are most active at night, so you’ll count yourself lucky if you even spot one in the wild 😴✨ 

Best places to spot tree kangaroos? Rainforest areas on the @athertontablelands, like at @nerada_tea ☕️ Didn’t spot one on your travels? Head to @rainforestation or @wildlifehabitat to check out their resident roos 🙌

It's beginning to look like Christmas on the #CairnsEsplanade 🎄☀️ Palm trees are swaying, lights are twinkling & the decorations have been dusted off for another year as we count down the days until Santa arrives 🎅Where better to get a view of this magnificent tree than from atop Oaks Cairns Hotel at @oakandvinerestaurant? 🍹
​
Did you see the Christmas tree light up last week? ✨​

Nothing beats the pastels of sunset at #FourMileBeach in @portdouglasdaintree 🌴🌅 This magical spot is one of @tropicalnorthqueensland's most famed beaches & it's not hard to see why ☀️Take to the sands by bicycle, hire a sun lounge & spend your day relaxing under the shade of an umbrella or take a dip in the calm waters ⛱🌺 Here you’ll also find the trailhead to Flagstaff Hill & plenty places to eat within walking distance 🌴 Anywhere you stay in Port Douglas is far from the beach, but there are a number of accommodation options where you’ll walk right out onto the beach 🐚✨

There’s something sow amazing about gardens, right? 😉

If you’re a little bit of a green thumb, you might want to spend a little time exploring this beauty in Cairns 🍃 The Flecker Botanic Gardens are home to an incredible array of plants & wildlife (mainly birds, but we could watch them all day! 🦜) Try a tour of the garden, check out the visitor information centre & let the kids explore their inner nature fanatic with the fortnightly activity program for children under five - there’s crafts, stories, sing alongs & garden discovery walks! 🌿

If you’re looking for a little more action, just a short walk or drive down the road you’ll find the Tanks Arts Centre & the many arrow walking trails 🥾🎭

A new perspective on a old classic...like, really old 🌴🙌 If you’d prefer your history lesson taught outside the classroom, then point your compass west & get ready to step back in time ⏱👈 The Chillagoe-Mungana Caves began to form 400 million years ago when the landscape was covered by a shallow sea 🌊⛰️ No, you won’t find batman hiding out in here, but you might be lucky enough to spot some bats! 🦇 Ripe with natural & cultural heritage, this incredible place is only a 3hr drive from #Cairns on the @athertontablelands 🚙

They say you should always look up on your travels & this is why 👆🍃Explore the beautiful @athertontablelands with a hike along the #NandroyaFalls circuit, beginning just west of the Henrietta Creek camping area 🏕Not only is this a great spot for a hike & swim, but it's also one of the few places in the @wettropicsworldheritage rainforest that you can find the world's largest fern, the King Fern 🌱
