Local Tourism Organisations
There are four Local Tourism Organisations (LTOs) in Tropical North Queensland which target grass roots industry development, in-region trade and media support and collaborative marketing investment. LTOs liaise with their Regional Tourism Organisation and state bodies on behalf of their members.
TTNQ shares a Memorandum of Understanding with each of the LTOs in Tropical North Queensland.
