This is an amazing waterfront, including history, exercise, cool volleyball courts, a great skate park, and kid play areas. Cap it off with the beautiful pool, and you'll say hats off to the civic planners here.

Long lovely boardwalk to stroll along eating icecream in the sunshine. Great to see families with kids, couples and everything in between enjoying this lovely public space.

The esplanade is always a pleasant walk, jog or bike ride

Even in rain it's nice to get out after work

Insects sometimes bite at northern end but the balance of the walk seems inspect bite free

In Cairns, my husband was sick, so I spent quite a bit of time on my own. I loved walking along the boardwalk and seeing the various sights. And once more, it is FREE! We had just arrived from Sydney, which is very expensive, so I was so impressed to be able to do something free of charge that was so enjoyable!

One of the free highlights of Cairns. It is buzzing with people all day. On Saturday part of it in front of the free pool has a great local goods market. Beautifully maintained and a credit to the City Council.
