The Cairns Museum has amazing stories to share about living in the tropics.
Stories of heat, sweat and hard work. Of cane, railways, rainforests and reefs. Of White Australia, Aboriginal resistance and European isolation. Tales of tourists, hippies and local celebrations, amidst humidity, cyclones, toads, mould and mozzies.
Come in and discover the real Cairns!
After two years of refurbishment and renovation, and an injection of AUD1.6 million dollars, the Cairns Museum is making waves in the tourism industry.
