Don’t Stop the Party

One of the top locations for backpacker’s and travellers to party, Cairns’ nightlife is an experience like no other.  Constantly changing and with a variety of nights every day of the week, you won’t be short of somewhere to have a nice Aussie pint or bevy.  The best thing about this popular city is that if you’re clever, you can enjoy all that it has to offer on a pocket pleasing budget.  From extravagant night clubs to unique bars, you’ll be saying ‘G’day mate’ to some new friends in no time.

The Wool Shed

The Wool Shed has 19 years’ experience in creating the ultimate party atmosphere for all travellers.  Open seven days a week until 3am (and on the weekend 5am), it is definitely not for the early birds.  Bustling with eager tourists and local travellers, the electric atmosphere and cheap drink offers are the envy of all its competitors.  So let your hair down and show off your moves on the dance floor -if this isn’t enough, do what the rest do and head for the tables!

P.J O’Brien’s

With chains up and down Australia, this Irish pub is the perfect place to relax with a cold beer.  Located in the city mall, the pub is traditional and authentic with your favourite Irish beers on draft or in a bottle.  Offering something unique and set away from the lively Australian crowds, it is open all throughout the week and holds exciting nights to keep you entertained.  From Coyote Ugly to open mic nights, the shenanigans are endless.  With a $13 meal deal on the menu, you can be introduced to the quieter side of Cairns at a bargain cost.

Gilligan’s Bar and Grill

There are only four words to introduce you to this place; open-air beer hall!  Located on the popular backpacker’s resort, the bar and grill features a sparkling outdoor swimming pool and upstairs an intimate, classy lounge bar for those wanting a quiet drink.  With international artists and DJ’s such as Far East Movement flocking to perform at the wild foam themed parties entertainment is the main attraction and sometimes the crazier is better.

Blue Sky Brewery

Original and unique, this is the place where you can finally lose your persistent longing for a nice ice-cold pint.  Try something new and fresh without having to put a hole in your pocket with one of the four delicious beers brewed in house.  Winning an outstanding 29 medals at the Australian International Beer Awards, it is a popular place amongst the locals and travellers.  After you’ve had a taste, why not sign up for the brewery tour to see how the great beer is created?

The Pier Bar & Grill

Undoubtedly one of the best bar locations in Cairns, this hotspot overlooks the stunning Australian Coral Sea.  Newly renovated and showcasing its spectacular views, the bar features an incredible outdoor terrace to make sure that you catch those glorious rays of sun.  Celebrating all things Oz, The Pier Bar and Grill is known for its extensive cocktail list, delicious fresh food and lively atmosphere – particularly when there is a game shown on one of the large plasma screens.
