Cairns Regional Council is proud to be supporting the Coast to Coast Conference in 2020 and we welcome you to our city.

With 81km of beautiful coastline, our community lives, works and plays on the coast, rivers, creeks, estuaries and offshore islands.

Our unique natural coastline is fringed by two World Heritage listed areas, the Great Barrier Reef and Wet Tropics rainforests, and is valued highly by our 164,000 residents and 2.9 million annual visitors alike. A major feature of the Cairns Regional Council’s vision for the future – to become the world’s most liveable and enterprising regional city  –  is to harness our connection to our natural assets and recognise the symbiotic relationship between our region’s environment and economy.
