Tourism Tropical North Queensland

Welcome to Paradise. Whether you’re chasing a thrill or a little bit of chill, this is the place to be. There’s a reason Tropical North Queensland has a reputation for being the most laid-back part of the country. It’s hard to take life seriously when you’re in a tropical paradise, with mouth-watering food around every corner and two incredible World Heritage areas right on your doorstep. It’s not just the weather that’s warm – the people in the Tropical North are about as friendly and welcoming as they come.

Feel the energy of a vibrant tropical culture of Cairns brought to life with, a pumping urban scene, colourful events like Port Douglas’ Hot & Steamy festival, and unique experiences unlike anywhere else in the world.

Free your playful side by exploring 14 kilometres of sand along Mission Beach, marvelling at romantic ruins at Paronella Park or rafting the rapids of the Tully River to discover the Cassowary Coast.

Refine your senses with an exotic getaway to Palm Cove and indulge in beachfront dining, decadent day spas and tropical resorts; or journey through the natural wilderness to the top of Australia and discover the landscapes of Cooktown & Cape York and follow in the footsteps of early explorers on an epic adventure taking in memorable pubs, Indigenous culture and Australian history.

Uncover the hidden gems and historical landmarks of the Gulf Savannah & Outback as you explore a vast landscape where spectacular gorges, ancient lava tubes and rugged ranges reign supreme.

Take a turn towards the Atherton Tablelands for serene waterfalls, spectacular farmlands and timeless villages. Discover the exotic tropical flavours, unique wildlife and outdoor pursuits that make the Tablelands and Kuranda some of the many must-dos within the region.

Let the charm of Port Douglas' boutique tropical village and the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest revitalise you. Indulge in dining, shopping and pampering and experience the beauty of two World Heritage areas in a region that feels a world away.

You won’t get a warmer welcome anywhere else, so what are you waiting for?
