Music, Theatre, Visual Arts, Comedy - Engaging The Cairns Community
"A very well run venue with people who care about what they do." - Tracy
In the midst of a tropical rainforest, you'll find Tanks Arts Centre; a multi-art venue to welcome the community. The unique setting of the WW2 naval oil storage tank provides a great backdrop for all forms of creativity. Enjoy the sweet sounds of national and international music performances, or spend some time taking in the artwork.
"Always friendly and good vibes from staff and security. Beautiful place, tranquil, natural setting! A wonderful history of superb music and other interesting events; plus a splendid art gallery to enjoy after a show." - Rob
Big Names Love Performing Here!
"Who would have thought a gargantuan tank could scrub up so good? And feel so romantic-like! There were candles and palm-tree fronds everywhere. Everyone seemed to know everyone, and treat us like they knew us too, which we appreciated very much. No wonder it’s (reportedly) Tex Perkin’s favourite venue! He’s played a few – he should know." - Clare Bowditch
