Cairns Convention Centre

Building Queensland is leading the development of a detailed business case for the Cairns Convention Centre (the Centre) in partnership with the Department of Housing and Public Works.

The centre hosts international and national conventions, exhibitions, concerts, functions and sporting events.

The business case is investigating:

  • essential repairs and maintenance works—partial replacement of roofing materials, replacement of the lifts, upgraded air-conditioning, upgrade of disability access and improved computer and audio systems
  • refurbishment works— including new floor coverings and fresh paint
  • expansion works—to facilitate additional space for convention, plenary, meeting and support spaces.

Expansion and refurbishment is proposed to enable the centre to host larger and additional concurrent conventions and events.

The detailed business case is expected to be completed in Q2 2019.

The expansion and refurbishment are intended to commence in June 2020. These works will coincide with a planned temporary closure between May 2020 and October 2020 to undertake the essential repairs and maintenance.
