The Cairns Esplanade is a great area to take a dawn or sunset promenade while taking in the atmosphere of this welcoming town. This coastal strip has been converted into a thriving social hub and entertainment centre that caters to both locals and tourists following a major refurbishment. The esplanade, which runs along the town’s seafront, currently includes lush tropical parks, playgrounds, a swimming lagoon, and a waterfront promenade. The surrounding mangroves and tidal flats are teeming with birdlife, and interpretive signs provide fascinating facts about the region’s ecosystem.
A climbing park, beach volleyball courts, bike routes, a skate park, workout equipment, water-themed playgrounds, and more are among the many free activities. Picnickers will find barbecues strewn along the grounds, and restaurants and cafés offer a variety of dining alternatives.
