Nutrition Plate Model Health Management DietitiansDining Hall

Cairns Student Lodge’s dining hall is where your breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served.
The dining hall has communal tables so that you can share a meal with your new Cairns Student Lodge friends.
You can also choose to pack your lunch at breakfast and take your food with you, so you don’t have to return during the day.

All the meals at Cairns Student Lodge are nutritionally balanced and
have been evaluated by a nutritionist and qualified dietitian. Read the report here.

We pride ourselves in providing students with the “better” choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
