Things to do in Cairns

Cairns on the far north coast of Queensland, Cairns is a popular tourist destination in Australia due to the climate and the close proximity to the Great Barrier Reef, one of the seven natural wonders of the world.

With Cairns tropical location they area can be susceptible to cyclones, so be sure to visit in the right season because if you do you will be rewarded with one of the most stunning diverse regions in Australia. With rainforests, reefs and beaches as well as new attractions like the casino or waterfront there is something for everyone on every budget in Cairns.

A relaxing day can be spent in Cairns on The Esplanade, this is an area by the waterfront with a number of attractions and activities the whole family can enjoy. Taking a stroll along The Esplanade you will come across free exercise classes held each morning, a huge number of parks (including a skate park) and many spots to sit and relax watching the world go by. If you are lucky enough to be around on a weekend they also have fantastic weekend market that locals and tourists alike enjoy.

Given the climate in Cairns once you have done exploring the area there is a good chance you will want to go for a swim, and if so you are in luck as there is also a giant lagoon style pool. All of these things are provided free of charge for the public to enjoy, so make the most of it.

There are also plenty of restaurants around The Esplanade area for a bite to eat. The key to having a good meal in a location like this is to avoid the tourist traps and seek out where the locals eat.

One such place is the Lillipad Cafe, this is a small place on Grafton Street near the pier and does some great tasting low cost meals. Their breakfasts are an excellent way to start the day and they do one of the best eggs benedict this side of Darwin.If you are up a bit later in the day you can always try their steak burger with the steak cooked perfectly to your liking. Nothing on the menu is over $20, so it is affordable to eat every meal here.

One of the best ways to end your day in Cairns is to take a sunset harbour cruise, these last a couple of hours and take you around the harbour taking in the magnificent sights and sounds of the estuary located beside Cairns.

There are 300 square Kilometres of dazzling mangroves seething with wildlife for you to explore and while you are guaranteed to see some beautiful animals with a bit of luck you may also see one of the deadliest ones.

The mangroves a perfect habitat for Saltwater Crocodiles, one of the most dangerous predators known and if you keep your eyes out you may just see one sunning itself on the sandy banks. Commentary from the knowledgeable crew as you go will also give you a greater understanding of the area you are seeing.

After a hot day of crocodile spotting there are not many things that can refresh you more than homemade ice cream. Located close to the pier you can find Gelocchio which serves some of the best Gelato you will ever find.

Service is quick and friendly, the flavours a plentiful and mouth watering and the prices will ensure you come back more than once. For something different try the Dragonfruit flavour, it is made from fresh fruit(as all their gelato is) and really hits the spot.
