The Convention Centre is home to the Cairns Taipans national basketball team and seats 5000 in the main hall, hosting conferences from companies around the world. WHILE THE PANORAMA IS LOADING (usually about a minute) take a look at the photo below. This is an aboriginal rock painting in the Cape York area. This culture dominates the prehistory of Cairns. Carvings and paintings date back thousands of years. More recently, aboriginal artists have emerged with paintings and decorated artifacts including didgeridoos, boomerangs and dreaming sticks.
