Tropical North Queensland is one of the most diversely beautiful and powerful Australian tourism stories. In 1978 the Far North Queensland Promotion Bureau was formed to focus on destination marketing and as a result tourism slowly overtook agriculture, forestry and mining as an economic driver for the community. Today, Far North Queensland Promotion Bureau Limited, trades as Tourism Tropical North Queensland (TTNQ) and Business Events Cairns & Great Barrier Reef, with the vision of becoming one of the world’s most inspiring nature-based destinations.
