Each year, Cairns Regional Council welcomes new babies to the region and celebrates their arrival with a special ceremony.
For parents of new arrivals, the ceremony provides a special family keepsake in the form of a beautiful commemorative certificate. It is also a lovely day out for the entire family as we encourage siblings, grandparents and other family members to attend. A tree will also be planted in your baby's honour at a later date.
This year's ceremony will be held on Saturday 26 October at Cairns Regional Council (Civic reception rooms / Courtyard), 119-145 Spence Street, Cairns.
