Add some beat to a Tropical North Queensland break. Spring is humming with music festivals and events across genres, with something for all ages. Unwind and connect as you spend warm sunny days and cool nights soaking up the atmosphere and sounds of Australian and international artists. You’ve got to stay in style, of course. So make the grand Pullman Cairns International your base for some sweet auditory stimulation. 

Our top pick!
Savannah in the Round 
Fri 30 Sept-Sun 2 Oct 2022 
Mareeba, Cairns Hinterland

If you want to get into the groove, go big. With three huge days and nights of entertainment and multiple stages, Savannah in the Round has grown to be one of the largest music events in Queensland. It’s not to be missed!

The year’s line-up includes Brad Paisley (USA), The Waifs, Jon Stevens, and Vanessa Amorosi, among dozens of acts. As a festival partner, Pullman Cairns International is offering special discounted accommodation and a daily express shuttle to and from.


Crowded House 
Tue 1 Nov 7.30 pm-9 pm 2002
Cairns Convention Centre

After more than 11 years, award-winning icons Crowded House are back on our shores. Cairns is just one of twelve dates on their Dreamers Are Waiting tour – a tour that has played full houses and attracted widespread acclaim. 

Soak up the pop-rock vibes as the band play legendary anthems from the past 35 years alongside fresh new tunes. Neil Finn and the rest of the boys won’t disappoint. 
If ‘Weather with You’ and ‘Better be Home Soon’ aren’t on the list, a drink’s on us. 


Plus, don’t miss these additional iconic acts

Vance Joy – The Long Way Home Tour, Sat 23 Sept 6 pm, Munro Martin Parklands

George Thorogood & The Destroyers – Sat 5 Nov TBC, Cairns Convention Centre

Whatever events sing to you, the relaxing playground of the Pullman Cairns International is the best place to refresh, recalibrate and get ready for the next act!
