We'll be doing some asphalt works on Airport Avenue next Tuesday (28th) and maybe Wednesday (1st). This will cause some traffic disruptions between 10am and 7pm on the northern side of the Lake St intersection. So if you're heading that way, leave a few minutes early to be on the safe side.

Anyone keen for a swim? You never know what you'll find at the Buy Back Shop - and here's proof! We currently have a second-hand pool available to buy - just needs a little cleaning up and a hole in the ground to drop it. Come on down and check it out! Open Thu-Sun 8.30am-5pm.

A reminder that the Green Arrow is still out of action for repairs. There have been a few washouts on the track following the recent heavy rain. We're working to fix these as quickly as possible. Thanks for your patience.

Our staff have really turned it on today to show support for our Cairns Taipans. The libraries, in particular have put on some great displays of orange - the Taipans are regular visitors to our library branches and are fantastic reading ambassadors for our community. #GoTaipans #OrangeArmy

Thousands of Cairns-made stars will feature in a special art installation at next year's Gold Coast Commonwealth Games as part of the One Million Stars to End Violence campaign.
