Dunwoody’s Tavern is getting a $2.5 million makeover

North Cairns institution will get a major transformation 

A multi-million-dollar makeover is underway at Dunwoody’s Tavern. The major revitalisation project will see all areas getting a major refresh, as well as the addition of a new outdoor bar and a new dining area in the beer garden.

The sports bar is now temporarily closed for renovations, but the bistro and gaming room are still currently trading. The bistro will close in early 2022 for renovations, before a full venue re-opening in autumn 2022. The new bistro will seat 150, the deck 112 people and the beer garden will seat 106 patrons.

The new beer garden includes access to a new indoor-outdoor bar and shaded outdoor dining zones that cater to social crowds and families. Inside, the bistro, sports bar and gaming room are getting a total refresh to make the venue more welcoming and comfortable for local families and residents.

Dunwoody’s Tavern will continue to be a local’s local, with a fresh new menu by Executive Chef Dylan Kemp that will offer high quality and strong value across pub classics, a grill, burgers and sandwiches and lighter options.
On re-opening, entertainment will be a big focus, with local acts playing on a new stage in the bistro.

Dunwoody’s Tavern is operated by Australian Venue Co. and COO Craig Ellison is excited to be investing in the venue.

“Dunwoody’s Tavern has proudly served the North Cairns community for nearly 30 years, and our locals have well and truly earned a refreshed pub! We’re investing heavily in this venue to deliver a total transformation for our locals.”

Australian Venue Co will be growing the Dunwoody’s team before re-opening the venue, hiring will begin in December 2021.

Australian Venue Co currently operates a number of popular venues in Queensland and the group is investing heavily in renovation of the pubs for the community, including Palm Cove Tavern in Palm Cove; Kings Beach Tavern on the Sunshine Coast; Bribie Island Hotel; The Crown Hotel and Beenleigh Tavern in Brisbane; and Wallaby Hotel on the Gold Coast.
