Merry Christmas from the Tropic Now Team
‘Tis the festive season and the Tropic office is now closed
Not a keyboard is clicking, not even the head honcho’s.
It’s been a big year for the team, so here’s a recap
Before we settle ourselves for a brief tropic nap.
First and foremost, thank you to all of our clients, readers, subscribers and likers for your support, story tips and general engagement.
2018 saw some huge issues, events and incidents in the city we love to call home.
The Toyah Cordingley murder investigation was by far the story that touched our readers the most.
In fact, five of the top ten most viewed Tropic Now stories were about the loss of the 24 year-old and the hunt for her killer.
Our story on the March downpour, which saw unprecedented flooding on the Captain Cook Highway and at Redlynch was also in the top ten, along with a February story about Redlynch residents seeing red over a proposed flood warning system.
Cairns Airport’s domestic terminal upgrade, Tropic Now’s crystal ball yarn on why the Cairns economy would shine in 2018 and a guide on the cash-for-container scheme rounded out the top ten.
In 2019, we’re planning to be even bigger and better, increasing our coverage and our reach.
If you haven’t already done so, make sure you follow us on Facebook.
And if you want to be informed and in-the-know about all that’s happening in Tropical North Queensland in 2019, subscribe to our magazine to have it delivered to your door.
Merry Christmas and a happy new year!
The Tropic team will be back on deck from January 2.
