The Cairns Style Design Guide describes in words, pictures and diagrams the tropical style that is the desired design direction for the City of Cairns.
Cairns Style is a broad concept ranging from the overall pattern and rhythm of streets to the detail of window awnings and balustrades.
Cairns Style is important for all building projects, from minor building renovations in the suburbs to new commercial projects in the City Centre. Retaining and enhancing the distinct tropical style and character of Cairns will improve the aesthetics, amenity and liveability of the Cairns Region.
