Cairns Central School

Few places can rival the stunning scenery of Cairns, with its backdrop of rainforest mountain ranges and the sparkling Coral Sea, and easy access to the world-famous Great Barrier Reef. Relax in the idyllic parkland and lagoons of Cairns Esplanade, dine al fresco at one of the many restaurants covering worldwide cuisine, or go diving with marine wildlife.

Located in the centre of the city business area with major shopping facilities a short walk away, our Cairns Central School has fully air-conditioned classrooms with direct access to outside balconies. Our state-of-the-art computer room offers free internet and email access, and students can relax in one of two recreational areas including an outside terrace with café-ideal for a laid back drink on a sunny afternoon.
