NAMED in the top four international conventions centres in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008 and 2010, Cairns Convention Centre provides a venue not only for meetings, but also for community events such as NBL basketball, concerts, trade exhibitions, graduation ceremonies, speech nights and gala banquets. Cairns Convention Centre is part of a vibrant tropical city that boasts world-class business events infrastructure and an international reputation for delivering successful and engaging events. Just 10 minutes from the international and domestic airport, the Cairns CBD boasts 7000 hotel rooms, excellent dining and entertainment options and more than 600 tours departing daily to the Great Barrier Reef, palm fringed tropical islands, world heritage rainforests, and
the great Australian outback.
In addition to excellent infrastructure, the Queensland Government has appointed the country’s first fly in, fly out coordinator to make Cairns one of the largest FIFO mining hubs in Australia. With 3000 residents already using the city as a FIFO base, the FIFO coordinator will work in partnership with mining industry bodies to match local job seekers with mining, construction and infrastructure projects.
Cairns can offer a wonderful lifestyle for FIFO workers and their families, with outstanding community infrastructure and facilities, including excellent schools, recreation and health facilities and affordable housing
