There is definitely more than you think going on in little regional town Cairns. We have an awesome variety of venues to showcase every genre you can think! Cairns live music scene is becoming more and more alive with fab national and international musicians and artists coming to entertain Cairns in intimate venues that just create such a tingle in your toes you can't help dancing.
You can also get your tickets at the door, so no need to worry about forgetting to bring them with you. I always keep my concert tickets too, for me a ticket provides more than admission to the gig... Stubs are filled with great memories, emotions and fingers crossed, if your lucky could even be signed and become a piece of memorablilia in your old school scrapbook/ photo album!
Let the good times roll, let the good times roll, good time to roll on.
Who doesn't looooove a festival??!? We have some cracking ones! Ranging from 1 day to 3 day events of sun (90% of the time ;-p), awesome tunes, fab atmosphere, likemided peeps sharing the love and contageous fun with laughter and good vibes, What's not to love about a festival?
Do something a little different while your here! Join a workshop! Try something you've always wanted to but thought your friends would laugh, who cares, no-one knows you! I gaurantee though, that you will walk away with many new ones. Have some fun and be freeeeeeee!
Check out what's happening in Cairns Festivals & Workshops to make sure you're not missing out on creating your ultimate getaway!
Give me sun, give me dirt, give me water, give me sweet ever lasting holidays!
You can't go passed a great theatre production or film! Whether it be a theatrical drama by our talented local groups at Rondo Theatre or Jute Theatre, a grand classical ballet performance by a visiting Royal Company or Melbourne Comedy Festival at the Cairns Civic Theatre, the yearly visit from the Travelling Film Festival or a beautiful contemporary dance and theatre piece at Cairns Centre of Contemporary Arts.
I could spend a whole weekend weaving through the galleries around town and still not get through them all! Cairns Art Galleries are spread throughout CBD, lucky Cairns city is only small. Fantastic art houses to display each unique piece of work complimentary to the artists exhibition. If you are an art fan, definitely put at least 3 galleries on your list, there's a great variety for you to appreciate.
I just had to add this as a category! We have so many fab and special performances so very fitting to it! This section is for gigs/performances, for those who aren't aquainted with 'Golden Oldies', that come from an era prior to around the late 70's. I absolutely love this genre, old school music is a personal fav, inspired so much! Go back in time, get your groove on and sing along!
Golden years, gold, whap whap whap. Golden years, gold, whap, whap, whap.
We can't have all the fun! If you are travelling with rug rats, we certainly have something special for them too, especially in school holidays. Have a look and get booking their options in too, so they share the ultimate getaway experience as well!
