Cairns Regional Council plays a fundamental role in planning and providing for the Cairns community. We deliver more than 400 services and functions to a population of over 150,000 across an area of nearly 1700km2 from Bramston Beach to Palm Cove.
A pro-business, focused and results-driven Council, we actively seek to enhance and diversify the Cairns economy. We are focussed on providing a business environment that encourages investment and supports appropriate, sustainable business and industry growth whilst enhancing local lifestyle and providing long term employment opportunities.
We work with the Australian and Queensland governments, peak industry bodies and other key stakeholders to diversify our regional economy and maximise our opportunities, with particular emphasis on tourism, marine, defence, aviation, international education, agriculture, mining, tropical expertise, retailing, tertiary education, and sports tourism.
