Cairns Convention Centre

Corner Wharf & Sheridan Streets

Cairns, Queensland

 

The Cairns Convention Centre is only ten minutes from the Cairns International Airport.

 

The Centre is renowned for its unique environmental design and is surrounded by the Great Barrier Reef and ancient tropical rainforests.

 

Taxis and regular bus shuttles are readily available from Cairns Airport.

The Cairns Convention Centre is a world-class conference venue, voted World’s Best Congress Centre by AIPC in 2014. It is Australia's first environmentally designed major public building and has won many awards for its energy and resource conservation features. For example, its double layer pleated plate roof captures the seasonal tropical downpours directly into storage tanks, providing half of the Centre’s grounds and garden watering needs. Solar hot water heaters provide up to 35% of the Centre's hot water needs. Shading devices on the eastern side reduce the need for air conditioning.

 

Cairns Convention Centre is a proud member of Taste Paradise, the regional food network that supports the connection between food producers and consumers. Where possible, the convention centre sources the food for its delicious menus from the local area.
