Update – $13m Refurbishment
In an exciting announcement and following consultation with the original architects, Cox Rayner, it has been revealed that as part of the upgrade to the Cairns Convention Centre, the whole exterior will be given a make-over and colour change to present an updated contemporary and stylish new appearance. This is in addition to a new arrival zone, upgrades of solar hot water panels, lifts, air-conditioning and car parking as well as partial roof replacement.
Thanks to the efforts of the 163 local and 50 other workers employed by 24 Cairns and 9 Queensland based companies, the first part of the building works are on schedule to finish by May 9th.
The Centre will re-open to host events that have been confirmed for some time before completion work recommences at the end of June for another seven week period.
