Northern Australia Alliance
Advance Cairns is part of the Northern Australia Alliance.
Launched by former Prime Minister Tony Abbott in June 2015, the Northern Australian Alliance (NAA) is an agreement between Advance Cairns, Broome Future Alliance, Capricorn Enterprise, Greater Whitsunday Alliance (GW3), Karratha & Districts Chamber of Commerce & Industry, Northern Territory Chamber of Commerce and Townsville Enterprise.
The NAA allows the key advocacy bodies from Queensland, Northern Territory and Western Australia to unite and work collaboratively, acting as a catalyst to shape and change communities across Northern Australia in a strategic, consultative way.
Northern Australia is broadly defined as the parts of Australia north of the Tropic of Capricorn. The area covers approximately three million square kilometres with a growing population of around one million people.
Why the NAA is needed
The principal purpose of the NAA is to provide northern Australia with a clear regional development framework that is consistent with the unique identity of the region, ensuring that development is driven by an apolitical agenda and can be implemented over successive governments.
Members of the NAA share a common platform on issues that are universal and unique to the northern Australian region, namely:
