However, yesterday Kate Jones, Tourism Industry Development Minister inaugurated online public consultation wherein business and community members can discover in terms of new Global Tourism Hub and offer their feedback.
“It just makes sense that the first Global Tourism Hub should be happening here in Cairns,” Ms Jones said.
To quote Jones, “we’ve highlighted that the port land is where we would like to see it happen, but also we made it very clear in the consultation that we think we could sustain a Global Tourism Hub anywhere within a 60-70km radius of Cairns.”
“We’ve seen how transformational Queens Warf will be to Brisbane and we want to see significant investment in a new Global Tourism Hub so when people come to Cairns they get a world-class experience.”
Ms Jones explained as the major development had proposed strategy to include a second casino for the city, the existing Cairns casino operator would have the chance to submit an expression of interest if there were future possibilities to expand operations or invest in new products and experiences.
