Music Venue

Voted Cairns Best Entertainment Venue 7 years and counting*

One of the most highly distinctive and dynamic performance spaces in the country, Tank 5 has a licensed bar, tiered viewing area and standing capacity of 600 (seated 400). From early 2016, the Tank will also have a climate control system, making our venue cooler than ever!  Here’s what past performers have said …
