The Year of Giving Back #EventHereThisYear

Australia is a big, beautiful and resilient country, and Cairns & Great Barrier Reef is so fortunate to be surrounded by unique nature, ancient cultures, world-class infrastructure and a luxury, tropical lifestyle.

The Year of Giving Back #EventHereThisYear

Event Here This Year! Cairns & Great Barrier Reef is waiting. 

The impact of the bushfires and coronavirus have been felt throughout the country, but it’s the proud people, businesses and events of Australia that will make the ultimate difference.

Holding business events domestically is not only a convenient way to see and explore more of our big backyard, it’s also now a vital contribution to the recovery of the economy. So why not hold your #EventHereThisYear? Cairns & Great Barrier Reef is ready and waiting to make sure it’s the best one yet.

Business Events Australia have rolled out the #EventHereThisYear domestic campaign to rally Australian businesses and event planners to hold their meetings, conferences and incentives at home rather than abroad. It’s these choices that will support the Australians and communities who depend on tourism and event industries to thrive.

From barefoot welcome functions in the sand and conferences on the Great Barrier Reef, to gala dinners in a farmers’ cane paddock and never-been-slept-in beds at brand new five-star hotels, Cairns & Great Barrier Reef has everything you need to surprise and delight even the most seasoned Aussie delegate.

While bringing your event here will make a difference to our local and national economy and invigorate your delegates lives, you can also contribute to the protection and preservation of our unique wildlife and natural environment through our sustainability initiative, Nurturing our Nature with Business Events. Participating hotels will donate $5 per delegate to a nature conservation organisation or charity (T&C’s apply). 

Make this the year to evolve your events, think beyond the boardroom and go somewhere great, while giving back to our precious nature and country. The warmest welcome awaits your delegates in Cairns & Great Barrier Reef, The Natural Place to Meet.
