Performance usage

Munro Martin Parklands is Cairns’ newest premier community gathering place, complete with an outdoor performance space.  Due to the residential nature, the specific nature of the stage and the visibility the stage offers the audience, this venue is best suited to high end performing arts events.

Munro Martin Park is a space dedicated to curated events to provide culturally enriching experiences for the Cairns community. Due to its niche program, venue hire availability is limited and dependent on assessment by management to ensure performances are suitable for a curated space.

Embrace - public art sculpture

Woopen Creek based sculptor, Braham Stevens, designed the piece to withstand the harsh tropical conditions and maintain a 'timeless' character. Embrace is a nine-metre tall sculpture, made from laser-cut, heavy gauge steel and is part of a linking public artwork project which connects the Munro Martin Parklands with the James Cook University Campus. The sculpture represents the intricate relationships, cycles and connections between geology, ecology, man, time and place.
