Happy Birthday to Cairns' Iconic Nightclub - Gilligan's!

This month is the birthday of the World Famous Backpackers Hotel and Nightclub; Gilligan's have been running for 14 years strong with no signs of slowing down! When we asked Entertainment and Marketing Manager Zac Ross what it taken to make it to the ripe age as Zac was with the venue the day it opened.

He said "we are an extremely unique venue and we choose to evolve every year meeting the needs and wants of our guests and punters - through feedback and keeping our finger on the pulse we have seen the venue grow over the years and have no intentions on slowing down."

Zac has been with Gilligan's for over 10 years from when it opened and he drove up to this little town to be the resident DJ - with a short break in the middle - returning to take over the beast they call their entertainment and events department. Seeing many events over the years  make this venue what it is today but he does recall his favourite - even though it was a long pause and think when he said this was a hard choice but Regurgitator had to be up the top of that amazing list as it was 3 weeks out of their Band in a Bubble Promotion. An event that was not forgotten and many memories have been made over the years.

This weekend - Saturday November 11 will see Tigerlilly (Gilligans) and Ember (Attic) help the venue get lit and party into the early hours of the morning!

Over the last 14 years we are sure you have had many incredible nights with the venue - share your favourite moments with us while we wish Gilligan's a big Happy Birthday and wish them the best for all the years to come!
