The key driver behind The Precinct is creating a performing arts centre that meets the needs of the Cairns community. Redeveloping Munro Martin 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.
Unlike these previous proposals The Precinct will be located on Council controlled land and Council will be the sole occupant. By having full control over a financially viable development, Council eliminates a wide array of variables, providing certainty of the final delivery and timeline.
