Happy National RIde2Work Day! Join us on the Esplanade until 8.30am for a free hot brekky & lots of other great free stuff. Great to see our local boys & girls in blue embracing the day 😎🚴‍♀️
WEATHER UPDATE II Ride2Work Come rain or shine Ride2Work Day will go ahead as planned in the morning, so cycle on down to the Esplanade between 6.30am and 8.30am for a free brekky, sports massage, giveaways, and bicycle servicing. Here are a few handy wet weather riding tips to get you to the Esplanade safely: * Allow extra stopping distance - your brakes aren't as efficient in the wet * You may need to pump your brakes to dry out the rims * Keep your front and rear lights and helmet lights on to make yourselves more visible to other traffic * Be extra vigilant around pedestrians - umbrellas and rain hoods can obstruct their view See you at the Esplanade!
Get ready for the upcoming wet season by clearing out overgrown vegetation in your yard and dropping it off at one of our waste transfer stations on 4-12 November. If you live in a low-lying or floodprone area, this will also be your chance to stock up on some free sandbags and be ready for whatever the Big Wet throws at us!

How good was Elton John last night?! Mayor Bob Manning made sure the star took a little piece of Cairns home with him by presenting him with a photo of the city circa 1930 to add to his collection of historical photos. We hope it brings him many wonderful memories of his visit to our city.
Free shuttle buses from Lake St and the Cairns Showgrounds start at 4.20pm. The Showgrounds open for parking at 3.30. Entry is via Severin St.
Today's the day! Sir Elton John is heading our way for his Once in a Lifetime tour. If you're heading in to the concert, remember that you're one of 25,000 people doing the same thing, so take a few minutes to plan your trip and be prepared for possible delays. Take the bus or use our free park & ride to help keep traffic down around the venue. Let's make this Cairns' biggest and best night out ever!
