A key feature of the program will be thematically relevant pre- and post-Congress tours. A large number of popular commercial tours depart and return to Cairns daily which delegates are encouraged to book directly with the Pullman International tour desk.

Highly recommended tours include:

  • Mandingalbay Yidinji Eco-Cultural Tours
  • Mossman Gorge Dreamtime Walks

Congress-specific tours will be announced closer to the date. Subject to demand, topics may include:

  • Aboriginal community development
  • Indigenous cultural heritage and the World Heritage Estate
  • Management of the Great Barrier Reef and Wet Tropics World Heritage Areas
  • Tropical agriculture and horticulture
  • Local food initiatives in Far North Queensland
