Keep it in Cairns

Keep it in Cairns

By Danae Jones

There has never been a more important time to Keep it in Cairns and #DOITWITHALOCAL than now!

As the people of Cairns reel from the impact of the global pandemic on their life and on their ability to earn an income, one thing is for sure, it is only by sticking together, that we will get through this.

The momentum is building as the community rises up and the business resilience we are renowned for shines through. We are fighting for our ultimate survival.  But one thing Cairns is good at, is fighting, and sticking together when the chips are down. We are all too familiar with rolling up our sleeves when the going gets tough and coming out stronger than before.

Keep it in Cairns is an initiative of Cairns Regional Council and the Cairns Chamber of Commerce and we caught up with the city’s leaders who have united to take up the challenge to forge ahead as one and they’re asking you to join with them.

Politics and differences have been set aside and the fight to save our region is the razor sharp focus of each and every one of them. Some are on the front line fighting for us, others are advocating for us at a political, government and economic level, and some are busy planning the road out of this when we hit the other side of this dirty word known as COVID-19.
