What we do

TTNQ has ambitious goals which we will achieve by working diligently with our 2021-2022 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.

Winter in the outback? Now that’s what we call heaven ☀️ If you’re visiting @cobboldgorge, don’t forget to book a boat or SUP tour 🛶 There’s no better way to get up close & personal with the beauty of the gorge ✨ Beneath your board, native fish dart through the waters & beside you, the sandstone walls soar 19 metres high! 🐠⛰

This guy came to visit the @greatadventurescruises semi-sub recently and really livened up these lucky guests’ reef trip 🤿🐠

Have you seen anything quite like this on your trip to the @gbrmarinepark? 😱

Just a couple of Papuan Frogmouths caught by the paps 🎥 Much like our fan favourites the Tawny Frogmouth, these guys aren't actually owls at all 🦉 They are part of the Nocturnal Nightjar family, and are the largest of the Frogmouths in length 🌴🪶 Although the Papuan Frogmouth is common, they’re masters of disguise, meaning they can be hard to spot to even by the sharpest pair of eyes 👀
