The Tanks Arts Centre provides the ideal venue for your next event. Situated in the Cairns Botanic Gardens precinct, just 4km north of the City’s CBD, the Tanks Arts Centre is an iconic, and innovative, multi-use, contemporary arts facility creatively housed in three converted World War II naval oil storage tanks, and set amidst a flourishing rainforest.
The singular charm of these heritage listed and historic tanks, with their tall interior poles and lush outdoor backdrop, offers endless opportunities to make your next gala dinner, awards presentation, cocktail party or banquet a memorable one.
Whether it’s a meeting for 5 or a conference for 500, the Tanks Arts Centre has an unforgettable venue for you.
Choose from the Tank 4 gallery for events of up to 150 people with a backdrop of beautiful artwork, or the open space of Tank 3 for corporate events for up to 500 people. For smaller workshops and community events of up to 100 people, there is the multipurpose Botanic Gardens Visitor Centre and its amphitheatre, and if you need a large performance space, Tank 5 has a world-class sound system, stage, green room and bar, suitable for up to 650 people.
Each venue can be artistically lit to bring out its magical ambience, and our professional technical and events team are available to ensure the smooth running of your event.
