What we do

TTNQ has ambitious goals which we will achieve by working diligently with our 2020-2021 Strategic Direction. We are collaborating with the Tropical North Queensland tourism industry to master our destination’s story and are working with our partners to tell that story through digital, consumer, trade, media and travel industry channels.

Our marketing, communications and partnership strategies are priorities as we explore new digital and content opportunities that are changing the way leisure and business markets consume tourism products. We initiate high-level conversations with major airlines, tourism bodies, journalists, influencers, trade and online search engines to drive visitors to the region.

Mostly, we continue our hard work to add value to our members, in the hope we can lead the way for Australian tourism marketing best practice.


Happy Tuesday from our adorable friend Rosie 🥺 Did you know that the red-legged pademelon is the only ground dwelling wallaby that lives in the @wettropicsworldheritage rainforests? 🦘🍃 
Rosie was rescued in #CapeTribulation & is now having a great time at @daintreeicecream 🍦🌿 (we know we wouldn't mind spending our days with an ice cream company 😉)

Nestled deep within a 180 million-year-old rainforest, @mossmangorge is the unbelievably beautiful home of the Kuku Yalanji people ✨🌿 Before you explore the pristine waters of the gorge itself, or head off on a cultural experience in the rainforest, take some time to peruse the gallery & sample the local food at Mossman Gorge Centre 🍃🦋

Have you ever dreamed of waking up on a volcano crater?! 🌋 Didn't know it was a thing? Let us introduce @mtquincan on the @athertontablelands 😲☀️ This luxury hideaway is the perfect romantic escape, designed specifically for couples (read, no kids!) 🥰 Each pole cabin features stunning views, fireplaces for those cool hinterland evenings and a double spa. Ahhh, the ultimate romantic trifecta! 💖🔥

Gooood morning from #EllisBeach ☀️🌴 Who wouldn't mind taking a leaf out of @vanlifestraya's book and waking up here? ☕️ Located only 5mins north of #PalmCove on the #GreatBarrierReefDrive, you'll find the Ellis Beach Oceanfront Bungalows. @vanlifestraya recommend getting here early to secure an unpowered spot at the end right by the beach 🏖 If you're there on a Sunday arvo, pop down to @ellisbeachbargrill dollar oysters & live music 🦪 If not, they're open daily serving delicious meals, coffee & cold drinks of course 🍻

When you think of #CapeYork you may think of dusty roads or secluded beaches, but did you know it’s also peppered with its fair share of stunning waterfalls & swimming holes? 😲💦 #TrevathanFalls lies just south of #Cooktown in the northernmost reaches of the @wettropicsworldheritage bioregion 🌿 After taking a refreshing dip here, head to Cooktown for sunset at #GrassyHillLookout overlooking the mouth of the Endeavour River followed by a feast of local seafood at @sovereignresort 🦐🎣

⚠️ Always be croc-wise in croc country and only swim at designated swimming holes that you know are safe.

A chain of relaxed seaside villages lay just north of #Cairns including stunning #CliftonBeach 🌴 Neighbouring its more famous sibling #PalmCove, you can take a short walk or cycle between the two beaches to find your own secluded patch of sand under the swaying palms ⛱  Consider stopping in at local Clifton Beach favourite @cocomojos for a bite to eat from their world-inspired menu. You won't be disappointed! 🤤🍹

The road to #MountSorrow will have you feeling anything but 😅 Sure, the hike to the top may be tough, but the climb is compensated by the spectacular views over the #DaintreeRainforest & all the way to the sea 🌿⛰ ​@steve_jl_photography captured this incredible shot on the winding road to the aforementioned peak & loved the moody vibes you'll find at this time of year thanks to the nourishing tropical rain 🌧

With unobstructed views of the beautiful Coral Sea 🌊 & rainforest-clad mountain ranges ⛰ #RexSmealPark in @portdouglasdaintree is a popular spot for visitors to catch a glimpse of the sunset over the @gbrmarinepark 🐠 It’s the perfect place to pull up a chair under the palms & have a picnic with the family 🧺🌴
