FRIDAY night

What better way to kick off RHS and welcome you to the Far North Queensland region than with a sunset cocktail cruise aboard the Spirit of Cairns!

Delegates will enjoy a 2.5hr cruise onboard the 26m luxury sailing catamaran, with stunning views of the Trinity Inlet, rainforest-clad mountains and surrounding mangroves. As the sky transforms from a breathtaking red-orange sunset to a star-filled night sky, watch the Cairns waterfront and Esplanade precinct light up as you mingle with speakers, sponsors and delegates alike. Food and drinks will be provided, showcasing local produce and preparing you to dance the night away with our onboard DJ.

The theme is TROPICAL so be sure to dress in your best party shirt and dig out those beach hats and hula skirts for an unforgettable night in paradise.

Saturday night

Come and join us for an evening at one of Cairns' most popular venues - the Salt House!


Situated right on the marina, this water-front destination boasts a truly unique view of Cairns, and is the perfect space to unwind after a full day of academics, with a fantastic selection of food and drinks provided. This is your chance to dress up in your best cocktail attire and mingle with panoramic views as your backdrop. Come and see what living in Cairns is all about and soak up all the beauty that Tropical North Queensland has to offer!

Friday daytime

Joining us early? Why not experience the exquisite Fitzroy Island on Friday with our partner - the Fitzroy Island Flyer. 

Snorkel with turtles and tropical fish just off the beach, take in scenic vistas on one of several hikes, enjoy live music at Foxy's bar or relax on one of Australia's best beaches! Enjoy packages starting at $60 for a day on the island. 

​The following discounted options are available:

  • Return trip on the Fitzroy Flyer: $60

  • Return trip with lunch at Foxy's Bar: $72.75

  • Return trip, snorkel hire OR glass bottom boat: $74.25

  • Return trip, Lunch at Foxy's, Snorkel Hire OR glass bottom boat: $87

Please note, delegates travelling to and from Fitzroy Island do so at their own risk. AMSA RHS may not be able to assist you on the island as all services are provided by a third party provider under their insurance. We also accept no liability for any missed ferries, delegates need ensure that they are at the pier well before the scheduled departure time. Those delegates intending on travelling to Fitzroy and attending our Tropical Cocktail Cruise will need to step straight off the Fitzroy boat and onto ours. (We recommend taking a change of tropical clothes with and getting ready on the boat ride back from Fitzroy.)
