Project updates about the Cairns Convention Centre upgrade
A 24-metre tower crane has joined the Cairns skyline to start the heavy lifting with local construction crews on the Convention Centre expansion. With the capability of lifting 10 tonnes, the crane will literally be doing the heavy lifting to support the expansion works that includes a Sky Terrace that will offer breathtaking views over Trinity Inlet. Over the coming months the crane will be lifting steel, concrete, and equipment to progress the extension of the forecourt, main entry lobby and internal areas.
The refurbishment works reached practical completion on 5 May 2021. Events continue to be held in the refurbished centre.
The 10,500 sqm expansion works continue onsite including undercover entry, 410-seat plenary lecture space, three 120-seat rooms, exhibition space for up to 30 display booths, a 500-seat rooftop banquet space and a sky terrace overlooking Trinity Inlet.
Stunning new images now available
