There’s no discounting - there’s TONNES of things to do in Cairns, the Adventure Capital of North Queensland. With loads of activities at your fingertips, plus some iconic places to explore (how about the Great Barrier Reef and that World Heritage Rainfor...
No 1. The Cairns Esplanade (1-5 mins from CBD)
I hate to break it to you BUT there is NO BEACH in Cairns, at least not near the CBD anyway. Fortunately, we do have the Cairns Esplanade which makes up for this in bucketloads. It’s a fantastic recreational strip that follows our city’s shoreline and if you visit you'll find yourself hanging out with families, backpackers, birdwatchers, fitness lovers and anyone else who love being outdoors.
Here's my TOP suggestion on the Esplanade:
- Cool Off at the Cairns Lagoon
- Walk the ‘Narde’ via foot power
- Hang out at a Playground
- BYO & cook on a FREE BBQ
- Explore on Wheels – Cruise the ‘Narde via scooter, rollerblades, skateboard or pedal power along the designated bike path (5km round trip).
- Work those Muscles at an Exercise stations
- Join a FREE Fitness ‘Active Living’ class - Aqua Aerobics, Zumba, HIT and meditation
- Fish on the designated fishing jetty (complete with cleaning benches, rod holders and charts to measure your catch, as well as barbies to cook up a feed if you get lucky)
No 2. Visit the Northern Beaches (15-30 minute drive from CBD)
Head north along the Bruce Highway and check out the Cairns Northern Beaches line-up.
Machans, Holloways, Yorkeys and Kewarra – attract the locals.
Trinity Beach and Palm Cove are popular with Tropical North Queensland (TNQ) visitors with a range of accommodation, restaurants and coffee haunts along their esplanade plus watersport options.
No 3. Freshwater Creeks (15 mins – 1 hr drive from CBD)
The creeks and waterfalls of TNQ are easily the best way to cool off around Cairns.
No 4. Cairns Botanic Gardens (15-mins from CBD)
For one of the best exhibitions of tropical plants in Australia head straight to the Cairns Botanic Gardens for a FREE (and relaxing) day out.
There’s no need to pack a picnic lunch here, you’ll find plenty of café’s to choose from: the waffles at the Botanic Café are legendary, there’s some healthy eats at the Tanks centre and only a short stroll away (5-mins) is Edge Hill, with its great line-up of popular eateries.
No 5. Lake Morris (30-mins drive from CBD)
A drive to Cairns’ natural reservoir is a must. On the way up you’ll get some terrific views of Cairns, skirt through lush tropical rainforest and enjoy the panoramic landscape of the lake and mountains that supplies the township with the best drinking water.
No 6. Rusty’s Market (Cairns CBD)
Rusty’s Market is an easy, central location to peruse what’s locally grown (and made) around the region. Operating every weekend (Friday, Saturday and Sunday), you’ll find fresh coconut milk and cane juice, Vietnamese coffee, legendary samosa’s plus a huge range of tropical fruit and produce available. Be warned though, its difficult to wander around the stalls without parting with a few of your $$$$.
SO, Hopefully my list of 6 FREE things to do in Cairns has got you keen for a visit soon!
