Grant Activity:
Marine Equipment and Staff for Final Fit-out Stage and Post Opening.
Purpose:

The project will see the completion of the final $4.7m "fit-out" stage of the $54m Cairns Aquarium which will install catering equipment for a unique "aquatic" themed function centre which will attract additional new large (250 pax) weekly corporate and private functions to Cairns, and installation of plant and equipment for "behind-the-scenes" Great Barrier Reef interactive coral viewing experiences. 57 FTE staff will be hired in addition to the current 23 FTE staff. Completion of this project stage will bolster and provide resilience to Great Barrier Reef tourism through increased employment, attracting more visitors to Cairns, increase tourism spend, increased nights stayed, and give new reasons for previous visitors to return.
