Cairns Youth & Careers Expo 2024



The Expo will take place on 
Thursday 29 August 2024  

This event is FREE for the public!

This high-profile event will be held at the Fred Moule Pavilion at the Cairns Showgrounds on Thursday 29 August 2024.

Event Opening Times:       8:30am to 4:00pm 

The majority of Schools will be onsite in the morning so we suggest that the public attends between 1:00 pm and 4:00 pm so that they can make the most of their time onsite without having to compete with over 1,000 students onsite at any one time.

Thanks to the generous support of so many sponsors throughout the region, we are able to stage this excellent event for our community.

The Expo brings together a vast range of education and career providers to inspire our community, and students in years 10, 11, and 12 with their decision-making.  Our exhibitors consist of a large cross-section of vocational providers, apprenticeship and traineeship providers, and strong industry representation along with Tertiary/University institutions who will be there to answer all your questions.

This Expo is the only event of its kind in Far North Queensland - and it is also open to the general public, parents, job seekers and those looking for information on a career change.  We welcome you to come along.
