Tropical North Queensland open for business
Tourism Tropical North Queensland (TTNQ) Chief Executive Officer Alex de Waal said Tropical North Queensland had been enjoying clear sunny days since the low pressure system had begun tracking south of Cairns over the weekend.
“Cairns and Tropical North Queensland is open for business with both the Cairns Airport and the Cairns Port open,” he said.
“All 600 plus tours including those to the Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropics rainforest are operating as normal.
“Forward bookings for the school holiday period and Easter are looking strong in Tropical North Queensland.
“We wish our southern tourism colleagues the best as they prepare for Cyclone Debbie and trust they will be open for business soon.
“The Queensland tourism industry is very experienced at dealing with the impact of natural weather events and after ensuring the safety of visitors will work towards a speedy recovery.”
