The Cairns Tourism Industry Association Inc is a member driven organisation of individuals , businesses and like associations within the geographic boundaries of the Cairns Regional Council who are united behind the common desire to see Cairns become the international gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and Northern Australia and to grow and develop Cairn’s most important industry. As the Local Tourism Organisation (LTO) for the region encompassing the Cairns Regional Council area including the Northern Beaches, we are committed to representing and assisting our members to grow the industry opportunities to contribute to the overall growth in tourism industry development, employment, population growth and general economic development opportunities.

The purpose is clear and is contained in this correspondence to the Mayor of Cairns on the 8th November seeking to meet with him and updating him with our plans. You can see the letter here CRC Deputation Request. The deputation with the Mayor was held on 2 December however unfortunately the outcome of that meeting was unsatisfactory. You can see our response to the deputation here Deputation response to Mayor Manning Dec 19. Despite this, we will continue to press for better outcomes for the industry in a positive way.
