The recently renovated Cairns Esplanade is the hub for visitors
to the city, providing an entertaining promenade with numerous
recreational opportunities, lined with a host of restaurants, bars
and cafes. Apart from a safe, sandy swimming lagoon and vast lawns
used for all sorts of purposes from picnics and barbecues to kite
flying, the Esplanade features wonderful Saturday arts and crafts
markets, spiced up by buskers and colourful street characters.
There is never a dull moment on this lively foreshore.
