Makeover for Cairns

The Cairns Convention Centre will undergo a $176 million expansion that includes refurbishment of the existing centre plus the addition of new exhibition space and meeting rooms.

The Queensland government predicts the expansion and upgrade will have major economic benefits for Cairns, including an additional $30 million of economic benefit for the regional economy each year, greater investment in Tropical North Queensland, 20,000 extra visitors annually and job creation.
