Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Went there morning 6 when opens. Got coffee and samosa and croissants and brownies. All yummy. All tables are full all the time, in and out. Bought a lot of fruits and very happy with them.

    It was my last evening of 7 days in the area, and finally got to the Night Markets. Wish I had seen the selection/prices before buying souvenirs elsewhere. There is a good selection of generic Cairns souvenirs, and the prices were the cheapest we had seen. The vibe around the Market, Esplanade and waterfront is relaxed and vibrant, with loads of excellent restaurants within walking distance. Highly recommend a visit to the Night Markets if you're looking for discount souvenirs.

    Great place that we THOUGHT we could walk to from the Pullman hotel to the DFO. Big mistake … but worth calling a taxi for. Small but good centre. Great reductions in SOME stores. There’s a supermarket and food outlets too

    We spent considerable time with David, whose knowledge of the artwork is extensive. You could spend hours in this gallery choosing a piece of art or listening to David talking about the artists and their work. On his suggestion, we went to the gallery in Kuranda where we purchased a canvas. Sorry David! We are very happy with our purchase and the lady who sold it to us. She spent considerable time wrapping it so we could bring it home on our flight to Brisbane.

    A beautifully well thought out, warm and welcoming gallery. A wide range of amazing artworks and jewellery. There seems to be something for every budget. You can't come here and not treat yourself or a loved one to a unique gift. Super excited to be able to shop with them online!

    Great shopping centre. I like visiting Big W and the fact that it has both Woolworths and Coles is a winner for me. The only down side is the crime. I've been robbed twice while visiting. A young boy ripped my handbag off my shoulders just the other day, and my car's been vandalised tool. I suppose this isn't the shopping centres fault.. But just a warning to anyone planning on visiting.

    Though pandemic seems to have emptied some shops the hardy happy remain.
    Good range of Asian cafes, massage and beauty shops.
    Imagine when life returns to normal (2022/23) this mall will be busy again.

    Compared to all the other stores in Cairns, it seems almost out of place. Where the streets abound in discount stores, this reeks of quality with some of the world’s best known brands.
    It’s a quality outlet clearly aimed at the discerning international traveller but nonetheless, walking through an empty mall is quite disheartening.

    Only stumbled into Oceana as appeared a cool and shaded short cut toward Rusty’s market.
    Mixed and interesting collection of shops fascinated and slowed our journey.
    Hobbies, interests, music, fashions & eating options across a wide taste spectrum.
    Lo and behold, suddenly we’ve bought a dress and headed on.

    My first walk by I was drawn into the gallery. The photos are beautiful! I went back often before finally deciding I need the picture of the kangaroos on the beach! Just go in and enjoy the photos. There is no pressure to buy.

    Stayed a week for winter holiday in Shangri-la Hotel, within complex.
    Walked through and around Pier shopping complex many times.
    Dined at handful of restaurants and enjoyed the scenic sea outlook.
    Internally showed the sad tourist drought with many stores empty.
    Better times ahead should find vendors because of terrific location.

    We enjoyed our visit to the gallery to see Faceless and Dylan Mooney: A story of my people. Interesting space, thought-provoking exhibitions.

    I just love my new Australian as opposed to Chinese Uggs. I now know the differences between the two thanks to the education from the wonderful staff at this shop.
    The service and genuine product knowledge was superb.A great shopping experience.
