Recycled items are better put to better use than the parent materials they were made of. The Tank Arts Centre is the best testament of this statement. Three World War II oil storage tankers were put to creative use and renamed the Tank Arts Centre. Two of the main functionalities of the Arts Centre, to serve as creative hub and engage the local community have been more than beautifully met. There’s always some activity going on at the Centre. If it’s not an art exhibition, it’s a live performance or a food market….

Superb live music venue, in this case within Tank 5. Great mid sized venue, with bar facilities that are average priced only, good security and a great vibe. We need a lot more live music here in Cairns and I cannot recommend this venue highly enough for this purpose.
Fantastic part of Cairns. Vibrant natural gardens. Excellent venue for live music and markets.
Has always been an awesome place for gigs now even better with air conditioning!
A fascinating venue and well presented. History meets utilisation, a recycling high point. WW2 fuel tanks that have been given a magical new lease of life.
What a great cool little green oasis. We visited today and enjoyed the artesian markets and bonsi display. Very nice.
