How come this is so much cheaper than previous options? What is Council omitting?

The key driver behind The Precinct is creating a performing arts centre for the Cairns community. Redeveloping Martin Munro Park in tandem will enhance the area while providing a tranquil gathering place for the community.

This is a significantly different proposal to both the Cairns Cultural Precinct and Cairns Entertainment Precinct which incorporated retail areas and a museum, among other enhancements.

The core needs of a modern performing arts centre however remain the same, with The Precinct project drawing on the technical and audience requirements identified in previous proposals.
