Australia Day celebrations

Celebrate what's great about our nation at local Australia Day events!

Cairns Regional Council is proud to present and/or support three Australia Day events for the Cairns community.

Australia Day is celebrated in three locations around Cairns, the Esplanade, Northern Beaches and Southern suburbs. The Northern Beaches and Southern events rotate suburbs each year.

The Australia Day celebrations offer a free event for the community including breakfast at the Northern Beaches, music and community run activities.

The Esplanade event attracts both residents and visitors with an interest in music or recreation/socialising on the Esplanade.

All of the locations attract between 3,000 and 5,000 attendees.

Further details of the celebrations will be listed later in 2017.
