Welcome to the CCBWN

The Cassowary Coast Business Women's Network - CCBWN was formed when the Tropic Coast Business Women’s Network amalgamated with the Innisfail Business Women's Network in November 2010. This is a very exciting time for us and we will remain the vibrant network that provides support, training and networking opportunities for women in our region.

We support women in all kinds of business in the region covering Cardwell, Tully, Mission Beach, El Arish, Kurrimine Beach, Silkwood and Innisfail. With a strong committed group the network welcomes and encourages women in business or interested in business to come along and join us in the exciting times ahead.
