Southside Paintball is the brand new affordable paintball field just 20 minutes south of Cairns.

Offering just $20 entry and a range of fields and games, we won't be beaten on price or fun.

Call Boyd on 0458 144 909 to book.


Entry: $20

Includes 100 paintballs and all gear needed to play including paintball marker, mask, camouflage suit, padded torso vest and protective gloves.

Note: Entry price must be paid as a deposit for all booked players by the organiser at least 3 days before the game.

Refill of 100 paintballs: $15

Getting a refill is as simple as calling out to a referee, who will punch a hole in the player’s ticket and put 100 rounds straight into the player’s marker.

And that’s it!

We don’t mess around with special deals or extra equipment. We focus on providing easy, accessible and affordable paintball for everyone. Each player is in control of how much they shoot and how much they spend.

Payment is made by cash or EFTPOS at the end of each session.

Note: Only deposited players will have a slot reserved for them. Other bookings may take up available spots, so please advise Southside Paintball of any intent to change booking size as soon as possible. Deposits will be refunded up to 3 days before the game.
