Cairns City Centre Master Plan, December 2018 – ongoing
The current challenge is to build the Cairns Esplanade and Fogarty Park as per the concept drawing outlined in the Cairns City Centre Master Plan in the Cairns city to scale world. To do this take a look at the website https://www.cairns.qld.gov.au/council/major-projects/ccmp. See the consultation idea image below:
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.

We have chosen the Cairns City Library for this project. Go to the spawn point and take the portal to ‘Cairns City to scale’ and head down to the corner of Aplin Street and Abbott Street. The black and white rulers on the plans below are blocks, so the building is 8 blocks high. The plans are below:
