“On 29 May 2009, the much anticipated opening of Salt House in Cairns arrived.”


Situated at Marina Point, next to the new Cairns Yacht Club facilities, Salt House is a unique dining, bar and entertainment venue offering a panorama of the ocean, marina and city on the waterfront in Cairns.

Situated at Marina Point Salt House has been designed by renowned Sydney designer Michael McCann of Dreamtime Australia Design and the fluid space allows uninterrupted views of the changing colours of the ocean and mountains that encircle the city.

Salt House offers a  space that is glamorous, funky, chilled-out, progressive, stylish, calming, lively and welcoming all at once. There are several facets to this standard-setting venue: a large Restaurant area with a custom wood-fired grill and open kitchen, an outdoor cocktail bar surrounded by
flowing ponds and fire features and a glowing bar in the front of the complex which showcases local and visiting bands 4 nights a week.

Salt House is heavily focused on providing an atmosphere that can be enjoyed by locals and visitors to Cairns. Our commitments with the Cairns Yacht Club, Cairns Outrigger Club and Cairns Ladies Game Fishing Clubs have already anchored our place in the marina scene and our stylish approach to every aspect of the Salt House experience has ensured a loyal following and a place on the “must-visit” list of Tropical North Queensland.

Breezy seascapes and tranquil ponds during the day give way to a buzzing atmosphere and a discerning crowd as the sun goes down and the night heats up.

The story of Salt House has just begun…..
