Local Tourism Organisations

Local Tourism Associations

At a local level, there are a number Local Tourism Associations (LTA’s) across Tropical North Queensland. Each LTA conducts different activities for their members. By becoming a member of the LTA, you will have access to networking, cooperative planning and marketing activities they conduct.  The LTA’s work closely with their relevant LTO (Local Tourism Organisation), which in turn provides access to the RTO (Regional Tourism Organisation) activities and opportunities, being Tourism Tropical North Queensland.

​One of the top experiences in @australia is to say hi to our furry friends 🐨👋 @kurandavillage is home to many of our tropical wild friends, so where better to go animal-spotting than at one of Kuranda’s many wildlife gardens and sanctuaries like Kuranda Koala Gardens, one of the very few places in the country where you cuddle a Koala for a souvenir photo! 🎥💫

Here’s a cassowary joke for your morning - Why did the cassowary cross the road? 🤔 To prove he wasn’t a chicken 🐓😝

There’s not many places you can spot the elusive Southern Cassowary as you take a leisurely stroll down the street, but @tropicalnorthqueensland is one of them! 🏝 #EttyBay is one of the most popular spot to see cassowaries in the wild, they’ll often be seen wondering around near the beach 🙌 Did you know that there are approximately 700 plant species endemic to the @wettropicsworldheritage area? And almost 100 species that heavily depend on the cassowary to distribute their seeds 🌴😲

No wonder it’s called the Cassowary Coast 😉
