Cairns palm tree-studded Esplanade overlooking Trinity Harbour simply buzzes. The choice and quality of restaurants and cafés is amazing. You will find everything from coffee shops and ice creameries to bistros, wine bars, seafood restaurants and colourful night markets in Cairns.

Shoppers should head for the Cairns Central complex and the Pier Marketplace – Cairns is a shopper’s heaven providing a range of international and local wares.

Rusty’s Market on Grafton Street is a blaze of colour and activity. You’ll find tropical fruits like mangoes, jack fruit, black sapotes, rambutans and avocados as well as locally grown tea, coffee, and fresh herbs.
