Funding is drawn from:

The Cairns Regional Council continues to be a
major supporter committing $3 million to TTNQ and tourism marketing under Economic Stimulus for the region in the 2017-18 budget.


  1. Great Barrier Reef Masters Games held for the first time in May had 2000 attendees.
  2.  Cairns Airport Adventure Festival.  (Sports Event)
  3. The opportunity to bid for the Amway China Leadership Seminar for 2019 with more than 6000 delegates has been a major business
    events achievement for the year and is supported
    by an almost doubling of business events

TTNQ is further growing the appeal of our
destination with the Timeless Experiences brand
for the region’s Indigenous tourism experiences.
This was launched at the Australian Tourism
Exchange in Sydney and received much interest
from the trade and the media. TTNQ is seeking
funding to assist with marketing and to develop
Indigenous experiences across the region.
We are growing the capability of our industry
through the Australian Small Business Advisory
Services – Northern Australia Tourism Initiative
service. Coordinated by TTNQ, this service
assisted small or intending tourism operators in
developing the tools necessary for their
businesses through workshops in Cairns, Port
Douglas and Mission Beach and individual
mentoring sessions.
