The Precinct

The Precinct project will deliver a purpose-built performing arts centre known as the Cairns Performing Arts Centre and a lush, tropical parkland with performance stage and amphitheatre called Munro Martin Parklands.

Munro Martin Parklands (MMP) has been completed and was officially opened by Cairns Mayor Bob Manning and His Excellency the Honourable Paul de Jersey AC, Governor of Queensland, on 18 August.   

Work on the Cairns Performing Arts Centre (CPAC) began in May 2016 with the theatre expected to be open in the first half of 2018.

The cost of the overall project is estimated at $76.5 million. The Federal Government has allocated $10 million to the project under the National Stronger Regions Fund and the Queensland Government promised $15 million in its 2016/17 budget.

The balance of the project will be funded from Council's capital works budget over three years.
