TTNQ Board Charter

We are committed to achieving a high standard of corporate governance throughout the organisation, including the executive and managerial level. Through this commitment, we have adopted appropriate systems and processes to direct and manage the business and affairs of the corporation. Enhancements in this area are ongoing as we strive to achieve best practice outcomes.  > View TTNQ Board Charter October 2018

 

What does your elected director do on the board?

Some members might be surprised to know that a director is not a representative. At the board table, diverse views, skills and experience come together to collectively make decisions. Each director brings a unique perspective that adds to the board’s decision making but each decision is owned by the board as a whole.  > Read more

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 🧺🌴
