A vibrant new social and entertainment heart is being planned for residents of Cairns and the wider region. A setting for local celebrations and performances by people of all ages and from all backgrounds. A special place where people can meet and be together.
At its Ordinary Meeting on 30 May 2012, Cairns Regional Council resolved to confirm and continue the suspension of the Cairns Entertainment Precinct project.
Subsequently, at the Ordinary Meeting on 22 August, Council resolved to progress planning in respect of the Cairns Performing Arts Centre through a formal Heads of Agreement with Ports North. Under the terms of this agreement, a feasibility study will be undertaken for the performing arts centre location on the site of the Ports North Administration Building.
