Very similar to other cheap souvenir markets in other countries and cities. If you need something cheap to take back home, this is the place. Otherwise you can skip.

Situated on the main esplanade of Cairns facing the Pacific Ocean, this is an incredible night market. As you enter you have a choice of 2 cafe's and multiple Asian takeaways (Chinese, Malay, Thai & Japanese). Prices range between $10-$15 for a super large plate...More

Although there are some interesting stalls the majority are selling cheap, or overpriced, souvenirs. Worth a quick visit if you are after that sort of stuff or to see the handful of quality ones.. Oh forgot to mention.... There are about 10 chinese massage stalls...More

The night market in Cairns isn't huge but come with realistic expectations and enjoy wandering around. The atmosphere is fun and vibrant and you can enjoy a cheap meal here as well. There is plenty to look at if you take your time.

I would have to say I was quite disappointed with the Night Markets at Cairns. Some of the stalls very shut over quite a few days - pricing I found to be very expensive.

These markets are typical markets. If you are looking for tacky tourist souvenirs then this is the place to go. There is a food court with help yourself style buffets. If you like buffets then you might like this dinner option.

These are permanent indoor markets. 4 aisles of the usual jewellery, cheap souvenirs and gifts. You can even have a massage at the numerous stalls offering affordable massages. Food stalls are at both entrances with an Asian flavour. Sad to several of the food stalls...More
