Join us on the last Thursday of every month to meet like minded people. This casual networking event features speakers, music and brings together people from academia, NGOs, government, business and more, who all care for our FNQ environments and community.

ANNUAL conference

FNQ Environment  Roundtable 

The FNQ Environment Roundtable brings together CAFNEC member groups, members and the broader community together to collaborate and share our collective work for the Far North Queensland (FNQ) environment.

Community Collaboration

EcoFiesta

Every year Cairns Regional Council puts on a day of live music, interactive workshops, free kids activities and a massive expo of green-tech and sustainable living solutions. As a key partner of the festival CAFNEC holds a stall to educate and engage our community in the work we do.

PAST EVENTS

ANNUAL major fundraiser

Far North Wilderness Bike Tour

The Far North Wilderness Bike Tour is CAFNEC’s major fundraiser that has been running since 2001! The Bike Tour is an unforgettable 6-days of mountain biking through the spectacular Wet Tropics World Heritage Area in Far North Queensland. Definitely a trip of a lifetime through some of the region’s best scenery on wilderness mountain trails.
