The March for Science is a celebration of our passion for science and the many ways science serves our communities and our world.

The March for Science Cairns is one of over 400 events in an unprecedented global gathering of scientists and science enthusiasts around the world. We join together to acknowledge the vital role science plays in our lives and the need to respect and encourage research that gives us insight into the world.

Help us make the event a huge success!

The Cairns event will be formatted as a rally beginning at 4pm on the Eastern Events Lawn along The Esplanade.

Andy Ridley, ex-CEO and Founder of Earth Hour, along with a diverse group of scientists including some of our own outstanding JCU researchers will share their experiences and goals for the future.

Science in the Pub - The Salt House

Following the rally, we invite everyone to the Salt House to mingle with your fellow scientists and science supporters, as well as to connect with individuals and organisations. We want this to be an open dialogue between everyday members of our community, scientists, business leaders, politicians and organisations to ensure everyone can discuss science and get any questions they have answered in a friendly and welcoming environment.

We will be joining in festivities for the Cairns and Far North Environment Centre’s (CAFNEC) Bat Festival being held on the Salt House Lawn which is a family-friendly event.
