The Cairns Colonial Club Resort provides a Tour Office that is situated at the entrance of the Resort. Participants are invited to avail themselves of this staffed facility for all their tour and car hire needs.
A Souvenir Shop is also situated at the entrance to the Resort.
For the duration of the Workshop the Resort has provided us with a special run into the City every Workshop programmed evening. A bus will leave from the Conference Centre at 7.00pm each night with the drop off point being the Cairns City Centre where many cafes and restaurants are located. A bus will also pick up participants from the same point at 10.30pm each night. The bus driver will strictly adhere to these schedules, therefore if participants miss these bus times they will need to make their own arrangements, (e.g. taxi).
The Resort also provides regular daily bus runs into the Cairns City Centre and to the airport for all guests. Enquiries and bookings can be made at Reception.
