The Centre of Contemporary Arts in Cairns brings together a variety of exciting art forms under one roof. It is a dynamic cultural facility that showcases the breadth and energy of contemporary art in all its established and emerging forms. Located at 96 Abbott Street, the building was originally constructed as the Cairns Main Roads Building. This fine example of 1970's architecture was dramatically transformed through a $2.7m Millennium Arts Project grant and the new Centre of Contemporary Arts opened its doors early in 2004. Since then, it has become a landmark building in Cairns, with its distinctive, colorful jelly baby sculptures by Cairns artist Sophie Cadman providing a focal point for residents and visitors to the city.
