Far North Information

This region covers a total of ten government areas that of which are: Atherton, Cairns, Cardwell, Douglas, Eacham, Herberton, Johnstone, and Mareeba and two Aboriginal Councils: Wujal Wujal and Yarrabah. This region also encapsulates the Torres Strait Islands, Hinchinbrook Island and the town of Cardwell. Most of the population is located within Cairns, as is the administrative centre of this region. Other large population centres include Cooktown, the Atherton Tableland and Weipa.

Each of the different towns usually has their own major industry which contributes to the Far North's economy. Port Douglas for example, has a booming tourist industry, with hundreds of tourists flocking to this section of this region to soak up the relaxed, tropical lifestyle. Other major industries of the Far North region include tourism, cattle grazing, agriculture which includes mainly sugar cane and tropical fruits, and mining of both sand and bauxite.

The region of Far North Queensland offers much to see and do and is home to many amazing natural wonders. The Great Barrier Reef is situated just off the coast of this region, offering some pristine reefs, perfect for diving, swimming, boating and much more. These reefs are best viewed through aerial photography, as it is able to catch the sheer beauty of the reefs. The town of Mareeba holds a popular Rodeo during the month of July, and Chillagoe features some magnificent caves for tourists to explore.

The region of Far North Queensland experiences a very tropical climate, similar to that of the tropical islands located in the South Pacific Ocean. This region experiences two fairly distinct seasons, known as the dry and the wet seasons. From January through to April is considered the wet season, where the climate is usually hot and balmy, with many sunny days, as the rain predominately falls at night. From May to December, the dry season, the rain is less intense and the days are less humid, whales usually migrate during this time, and many dolphins can often be seen frolicking just off the coastline.
