Cairns State School opened on 19 Aug 1878. In 1914 Cairns Girls and Infants State School opened and, possibly at the same time, the State School became Cairns Boys State School. In 1943 the previous Infants section became Cairns Central Infants State School and the Boys and Girls schools combined to form Cairns Central State School.
