Why will this project succeed where previous proposals have failed?

The key driver behind The Precinct is creating a performing arts centre that meets the needs of the Cairns community. Redeveloping Martin Munro Park in tandem will enhance the area while providing a tranquil gathering and performance space 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 Precinct will also be located on Council controlled land and Council will be the sole occupant.

By having full control over the development, Council eliminates a wide array of variables, providing greater certainty of the final delivery and timeline.
