Membership

Membership comes in many forms but ultimately, we are on this tourism journey together. The more that we unite and build an innovative community, the more we can shift conversation and visitation towards the region. The benefits of supporting regional tourism are powerful and exciting. Furthermore, being a part of a dedicated community can connect you to opportunities that would not normally arise. If you do one thing in 2021/22, we ask you to review the value of being connected to the industry that binds us all to this region. We believe the more consolidated we are as an industry, the greater the results we can achieve together.

Dam that’s a nice view 🌊😉 Say hello to #KoombooloombaDam, a spot frequented by skiers, anglers & campers alike 🏕🎣 Located west of #Tully, about 40km from #Ravenshoe, this dam was actually built with the purpose of hydroelectric power generation, but we think it’s a nice place for a getaway (to the outdoorsy kind at least!) 🌿

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 🚙
