Cairns State High School is set on a 5 hectare block close to the Cairns CBD. Students at Cairns High are fortunate to be on a large block with scattered lawn areas, paved and shaded areas as well as established garden beds. The various shaded and non-shaded seating areas around the school offer space for students to congregate during breaks.
The Senior Memorial Area, which was built in 1996 in memory of students killed in the 1987 Cairns High bus crash, forms an important part of school history and tradition and is a designated Senior Student Area.
Minimal time is required to walk between predominantly air-conditioned classrooms and be exposed to an array of on site specialised facilities and state of the art venues.
Cairns High facilities are available for hire. For information regarding facilities hire please email FacilitiesHire@cairnsshs.eq.edu.au or phone 4050 3021.
