    Our mission at TropicNow

    The team behind TropicNow believes our city deserves a positive voice and engaging content, delivered by a 100 percent locally owned, operated and independent media outlet.

    On any given day TropicNow delivers a unique mix of breaking news, editorial video, guides, opinion columns, long reads, "best of" lists and community information. 

    TropicNow also has a mission to promote Cairns as a tropical world city in the Asia-Pacific region and provide a platform for an engaging mix of new and established voices for a regional, national and global audience. 

    At all times and in every way we strive for balance and accuracy in the way we report and present local stories.

    TropicNow encourages and fosters debate, and we place our readers and our region at the centre of everything we produce.

    Importantly, we want your voice in the conversation, whether it's sharing your story, your successes or your concerns.
