Cairns Airport unveiled the newest addition to the $55 million T2 Domestic Terminal upgrade this week, with the opening of the ever popular Rattle n Hum.
Rattle n Hum is the latest offering in the transformation taking place at the airport. With venues in Cairns and Port Douglas, this is the third Rattle n Hum to open in the Far North, presenting both visitors and locals an authentic Far North pub experience.
The new outlet boasts a selection of Tropical North Queensland produce including everything from local barramundi to mango salsa, Tablelands avocados, and a great range of wood fired pizzas.
Cairns Airport Chief Executive Officer Norris Carter said Rattle n Hum complements and expands the selection of food and beverage offerings available now as part of the upgrade.
“We want to showcase the very best that Tropical North Queensland has to offer to everyone who visits our terminal.”
Rattle n Hum Owned is owned and operated by Red Rock, who have a diverse range of hospitality and tourism businesses across the country. Director of Red Rock and Cairns local, Jon Hasler said it was an exciting time of the year to be opening at the Airport.
“Rattle n Hum represents another opportunity for travellers and locals to experience authentic FNQ hospitality and we are really thrilled to be open at the Airport.”
“With Christmas just around the corner, it’s great to be able to offer travellers the chance to get into the festive spirit early, with an outstanding selection of food and beverages including some of the North’s distinctive local flavours like Wolf Lane Distillery Gin, Macalister’s Latitude 17 Tropical Blonde Lager and new Fermented Kitchen Kombucha, that are all produced in Cairns,” Mr Hasler said.
New retail names that recently opened their doors in the Domestic Terminal include globally recognised Billabong, Relay and Kikki Ki. The new trio of retail outlets offer everything from swimwear and clothing to stationery, gifts and newspapers.
Mr Carter said the upgrade is on track for completion in September 2020 and will cater for the growth to six million passengers per year that is projected for 2027.
