Exploring The Esplanade

A major landmark is this long street with a parallel pedestrianised section linking hotels of the area with the many shops and eateries. It takes in several hundred metres of the waterfront and includes the pier, which has good shopping and a marina. There’s also a lagoon with an artificial beach.

As the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, Cairns grows more popular with each year that passes. Millions of visitors from all walks of life base themselves in the tropical city and visit the reef and surrounding rain forests. As so, Cairns has developed into a fantastic place to stay with an abundance of hotels, hostels and B&Bs to suit any budget. Recommended accommodation include the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Cairns, Rydges Tradewinds Cairns and Novotel Cairns Oasis Resort.

Sightseeing near The Esplanade

Visit the Esplanade Lagoon, for a day soaking up some sun, enjoy swimming, and take in the stunning views. Nearby you will find many cafes and restaurants, there's even a boardwalk with BBQ facilities for you to enjoy a fun time with your family and friends. North of the boardwalk, your family can continue your fun-filled day by visiting Muddy's Playground.

Transportation near The Esplanade

You can walk the central part—from the beach to the train station—but if you want to see a nearby beach, use the Sunbus. It runs from the Trinity Wharf Centre, near the casino, and takes in main city streets. The Sunbus also serves big pubs and entertainment venues at night, and tickets are purchased onboard. Taxis and shuttles are the best bet from the airport to Cairns’ main hotels.
