The Cairns City Lions AFL Club is an all ages, family friendly club.
We are based at the “Lion’s Den” as it’s affectionately known by the club, which is a magnificent location just a few streets back from the Holloways Beach. The oval is surrounded by tall native trees and is the most picturesque to be found in Cairns. Our club house, the Holloways Beach Sporting Complex has a bar, bistro and gaming.
In 2019 the club is celebrating its 50th year and numerous activities are planned throughout the year to acknowledge our history and to also have a successful year on the field.
2019 is a great chance to play under our coach Aaron Davey.
Aaron is a former AFL player with Melbourne Demons, where he played 178 games, was runner up in the 2004 Rising Star and Best and Fairest in 2009. Aaron brings a wealth of playing and coaching experience and we look forward to a successful season under his leadership.
Cairns is literally paradise and you get to “play in paradise” on well maintained and dry ovals all season. You will also get enjoy all that Cairns has to offer from its beautiful natural attractions to its great night life and restaurants.
For families there are great schools and it’s a great place for kids to grow up. We also have a great junior club for kids aged from 5 years to be involved in football.
