Community Programs

Community Give-Back Program

Cockatours is owned and run by a Mission Beach & Cairns local, who is passionate about the outdoors and promoting growth, especially in nature.

Our aim of the Community Give-Back Program is to share our love and passion for the wilderness with everyone, especially those that can’t access it readily and likely need it the most.  We believe that everyone will benefit in some way from spending time in the wilderness!

We are offering (for FREE) to take groups of up to 17 in our Cockatours tour-truck ‘Zeus’, to local swimming holes (Crystal Cascades, local beaches) on Sunday afternoons. This is our way of giving back to the Cairns community and we reckon nature is one of the best places to relax, unwind and heal! Please SHARE this to get it out there!

To qualify you must work with any of these (or similar groups) and have 1 or 2 adults to assist supervision:

  • At-risk youth
  • Mentally or physically disabled persons
  • Youth sport teams
  • Veterans
  • Other groups which may need assistance in getting into nature!

Testimonials

First and foremost, massive shout outs to Rossy, for reaching out, and facilitating such an awesome day for our ourselves, and our client’s at Youth Link.
Everyone got such a buzz from a super entertaining, knowledgeable, and fun afternoon on a trip from our centre in Cairns, to Davies Creek.
Rossy is an awesome host; ensuring duty of care, laughs and stacks of information of country, the history and people of the places we checked out.
We all got back to Cairns with such a great kick from our day, particularly those clients who may not get to experience these sort of outings very often. Epic times!
Big ups Rossy you legend!

Cockatours gave our Residents at Ozcare Recovery Service the best day out, Cockatours treated everyone with so much respect which is one thing they dont get alot of. Residents and Staff are still talking about how comfortable they felt right off the bat and how much they got out of the experience and loved the humour all throughout the day. Here at Ozcare we can not thank Cockatours enough for the most brillant day out. Cockatours gave back to the community by donating their Time, vehicles and experience which is a amazing thing to do. Best Day Ever – Highly recommend Cockatours to anyone or any group wanting a fantastic day out.
