The northernmost part of the state, Far North Queensland is a tropical region stretching from Cairns to the Torres Strait. With the magnificent coral of the Great Barrier Reef off the coast and World Heritage listed tropical rainforests on the land, there are not many locations in the world that can boast such unique natural attractions within easy reach. There is an abundance of wildlife that thrives here as well as some of the finest produce found anywhere on the planet. We are working with a whole range of people in the agriculture and aquaculture spaces to improve what is already world class.
The city of Cairns in Tropical Far North Queensland, is the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and the magnificent Daintree Rainforest. From scuba diving and snorkelling tours on the Reef to scenic railway tours through the Daintree Rainforest, this small city is a steppingstone to a whole range of experiences, opportunities and diversity.
The Great Barrier Reef and its associated sea life that surrounds it, is one of the seven natural wonders of the world. It comprises of more than 2,900 individual reefs and stretches over more than 2,300 kilometres along the north eastern seaboard of Australia. We are grateful to be so close to such a magnificent body of life however, it too needs protecting and it is through improved farming practices that we hope to contribute to the preservation of this globally significant oceanic breeding ground.
