Contemporary Arts Facility

Tanks Art Centre is a leading entertainment venue that hosts national and international performers. Located in the Cairns Botanic Gardens precinct, the area features a lush backdrop and attracts many people with its diverse shows. Tank 5 is the main performance venue. It features a bar and standing capacity for more than 600. The tanks, of course, are literally tanks. These venues have been converted from WWII naval oil storage tanks. The tanks are now devoted to the Cairns art scene and feature various exhibits as well as programs for theatre, art, music, and much more.
