The local population of Cairns city is relatively small, but thanks to the millions of tourists who flock to our friendly shores every year, Cairns buzzes with a dizzying nightlife that would normally only be found in a major city.
Nightlife in Cairns can be raucous and debauched or sophisticated and refined, depending where you choose to go.
Many of the city's entertainment venues form a 'strip' along Spence Street, which runs perpendicular to the Esplanade, towards the southern end. This part of town is popular with backpackers, and the atmosphere here can be somewhat 'wilder' than other parts of town. But there are so many bars crammed into this area that there is something for everyone. Guaranteed, the morning sun will rise before you've had a chance to visit every bar on this street.
But not everyone wants to party every single night of the week. Cairns has twelve cinemas featuring the latest movies and two theatres with a wide variety of plays to suit everybody's taste.
