Community Support

Cairns Community Support

Tropic Wings Cairns Tours & Charters and the other businesses that form the CaPTA Group, have a strong presence in the tourism industry in North Queensland, however our commitment to the region extends beyond tours and attractions.

CaPTA is a strong supporter of the local Cairns community and proactive in providing support through sponsorship of schools, the arts, as well as various sporting, community and industry groups.

COUCH (Committee for Oncology Unit at Cairns Hospital) is a local charity which was started by Charles and Pip Woodward in 2006 and is dedicated to helping people affected by cancer. The charity was instrumental in establishing the Liz Plummer Cancer Care Centre and providing radiation oncology services to Cairns.  COUCH has also recently built a Wellness Centre that provides health, well-being and lifestyle support for local living with cancer. This centre was built on land donated by the Woodward family. To find out more about COUCH visit the website at

Further support of the local community is provided by CaPTA through regular participation in community fundraisers, providing donations to various organisations such as the Mayor’s Christmas Appeal and the Salvation Army Red Shield Appeal.

Our staff members are encouraged to participate in activities that support the community so that we can make a positive difference to where we live and work.
