Cairns Esplanade

The Cairns Esplanade is an incredible location which is rich with fun activities for all ages. The Esplanade has been the gathering point for locals and visitors in Cairns city to gather since the region was founded in the late 1800s. This location is the main activity centre of Cairns, where everyone with all kinds of interests will find something they will enjoy including backpacking, jogging, skateboarding and much more.

The Esplanade also has its own swimming lagoon which overlooks the Great Barrier Reef and Trinity Inlet. The Lagoon is free to use and lifeguards are always present from morning to evening. The lagoon is complete with sand for children to build sand castles and shady trees for those who want to lounge and enjoy the leisure atmosphere.

The Pier

Just next to the Cairns Esplanade is the Pier Shopping Centre which overlooks Trinity Bay and the Marlin Marina. Cyclers who love to shop will enjoy the Pier for its designer fashion brands, entertainment and specialty shops. The Pier also has an incredible array of art galleries, bars and restaurants overlooking the waterfront for almost everyone to enjoy.

Other scenic views

The bike paths provide a vast array of sightseeing spots. Near the Esplanade Lagoon are the Cairns Botanic Gardens set alongside some of the most breath taking waterways including the Saltwater Creek and Lily Creek. The paths also give cyclists the opportunity to visit Cairns most scenic parks including the Munro Martin Park and the Martyn Street Sports Park.
