The Pier is Celebrating its 30th Anniversary!
To commemorate this milestone, as well as welcome a new decade, we are dropping a Time Capsule and we’d love to include YOU! Send us your letters, photos, and video messages.
We’re calling on members of the public to contribute to a digital legacy with the hope of recording present day life in Cairns, as well as capturing the thoughts and feelings of the current age – an exercise in digital anthropology.
⇒ Send in a photo, a letter, or a message to the future, and we will place it in the Time Capsule.
When the capsule is lifted in the year 2039 – on the Pier’s Diamond Anniversary, we can all look back and see what the Cairns lifestyle looked and felt like, AND read messages sent from the past…into the future!

The purpose of the time capsule promotion is to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the opening of the Pier, and public submissions for collateral are for novel purposes only. Whilst every effort has been made to ensure the longevity of the items stored, we cannot guarantee the condition of items buried in the Time Capsule will be legible when they are retrieved on the Diamond Anniversary on 28 November 2039.
