The Cairns Performing Arts Centre and neighbouring Munro Martin Parklands provide a triad of appealing, functional and versatile venues which enable enormous opportunity to host a wide variety of performances.
The Cairns Performing Arts Centre opened on 15 December 2018, providing an extraordinarily enhanced audience experience and a state-of-the-art facility.
The main components of CPAC are:
A 941 seat main auditorium incorporating balcony seating
A significantly increased foyer, bar area and public amenities
A studio theatre that can double as a 400-seat performance space, rehearsal and warm-up area
Improved back of house facilities, including more change rooms and toilets, a cross over, higher and covered loading bay
A deeper stage, more spacious wings, higher proscenium arch, higher fly tower and more fly lines
A much larger orchestra pit and providing better piano storage
The CPAC foyer and refreshment bar both open 1 hour before programmed CPAC events, so please ensure you allow time to enjoy a hot or cold beverage, refreshments, and take in some of the spectacular public artworks on display.
