Hundreds of gift vouchers ranging from $10 to $500 are up for grabs at Cairns Central – but you’ve got to get in quick.

Until Monday 6 June, the city’s leading shopping centre is celebrating the launch of autumn and winter fashion with an old-school Fashion Arcade.

It will see a total of $25,000 worth of gift cards awarded to lucky shoppers.  


Like all good arcades, the Cairns Central pop-up comes complete with a retro claw machine to pick pick up your winning dome.  

To try your luck, you need to spend at least $150 at select Cairns Central fashion, homewares and beauty stores and present your receipt/s to the Come Play registration desk.

For a chance to take home to the top prize, head to the arcade’s immersive ‘infinity’ tunnel filled with led lights.

Selfies inside the tunnel that are posted on Instagram with the hashtag #CCFashionArcade go in the draw to win a $500 Cairns Central voucher.

The Fashion Arcade is located on the ground level, outside Universal Store, and runs until 6 June.

This year’s autumn and winter trends are seeing explosions of colour, moody blooms and boots a-bound.

Pieces that are bold and bright, sleek and chic are what’s hot, along with patterns, prints and striking power suits. 

“Dressing for Autumn Winter in a tropical climate like Far North Queensland is about adapting the trends to suit our climate and lifestyle,” Marketing Manager Louise Struber said.

“Look for lighter fabrics, sleeveless sweaters and coats, less layering and ankle boots.”
