Far North Queensland banner

This vast and economically diverse region takes in reef and rainforest – the Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area – and draws millions of domestic and international tourists each year. Cairns, with its international airport, port, and two university campuses is the main centre of Far North Queensland. The proximity to booming South East Asian economies and the western Pacific positions Cairns as a key service centre for Northern Australia, South East Asia and the Pacific. Far North Queensland contains abundant fertile agricultural land and mineral wealth, positioning the region for a strong and diverse economic future.

We are creating jobs and strengthening the economy in this region through a range of activities including:
