Cairns City Centre Master Plan, November – December 2018 –  online workshop dates to be announced

The next challenge is to build the Cairns Esplanade and Fogarty Park as per the concept drawing outlined in the Cairns City Centre Master Plan. To do this take a look at the website https://cairnscitycentre.com.au. Go to the A Renewed Esplanade Parklands (Southern) page and you can find the design there. Or have a look at the image below:

Esplanade Master Plan Concept

You will need to measure the areas using Google Earth and estimate the sizes that are represented in the concept drawing. Note the major changes to whats currently on the Esplanade: 12 – Florence Street Pier, 13 – Expand the parklands and 14 Re-design Fogarty Park. It’s quite a big job so just stick to one small area and measure and build as best you can. Post your comments in the Comments section for this project.

Tanks Arts Centre school holiday program 3 – 5 October 2018

Workshops were held at the Tanks Arts Centre on 3 – 5 October 2018. During the workshops students built Lake Street and Shields Street. The students used printed detail plans and Google Earth to measure the sizes and used Google Street View to work out what textures to use. See the images below of what was built and have a look at some of the plans we used. If you would like to finish the Shields Street section, have a look at the plans down the page and get on the server!

Ravenshoe School Holiday Program 11 – 13 April 2018

Cairns Minecraft delivered workshops at the Ravenshoe Community Centre where 8 students and 3 volunteers worked together to measure and build the Ravenshoe Community Centre complex. The workshops also covered server management, plugins, World Edit, World Painter and mini game design.

The students built a Spleef arena in the two basketball courts next to the community centre and with a little help from some players in Cairns they created an awesome meteor impact crater Survival Games arena. Check out the video below.
