Although the city’s population is relatively small, Cairns nightlife is abuzz with all the vibrancy and energy you would expect to find in a major city, thanks to the millions of tourists that flock to Cairns each year.

If you’re looking for a wild and raucous night out, head to Spence Street where you will find many of the city’s bars – so many in fact that the sun may be rising before you’ve had a chance to visit them all!

If you’re after a more subdued and refined night out, then the city also has a number of cinemas (twelve in fact!) featuring the latest movies and there are many arts and theatre events on offer.
