Cairns Entertainment Precinct

The Cairns Entertainment Precinct was planned to be a World class regional Performing Arts Precinct including Lyric Theatre, Rehearsal space and secondary theatre, external performing spaces, and a regional museum within an existing heritage listed industrial building.

A key element of the design process was a significant public consultation process where we met with targeted stakeholders and held open public workshops which helped to gain significant public support in a volatile political landscape.

The design phases proceeded on time and achieved budget targets, however the facility has not yet been constructed due to external factors. It had been conceived as a project that would revitalise the city’s waterfront, boost local employment, promote international cultural tourism and provide community arts organisations with facilities for arts development and performance.
