About Cairns Esplanade

Located in Tropical North Queensland, the Cairns Esplanade is a scenic stretch of land serving as a focal point of the city since the region was founded in the 1800s. Boasting 2.5 kilometres of lawn and picturesque parklands, visitors will find plenty of activities to enjoy along this palm-lined waterfront in Cairns CBD.

A recreational hotspot, the crown jewel of the Cairns Esplanade is the unique swimming lagoon, a 4,800-square-metre saltwater pool with a state-of-the-art filtration system that can be enjoyed all year round. It is the perfect place for visitors to cool off from the heat, soak in the sunshine and take in the views of the sparkling Trinity Inlet and mountains that surround the area. Nestled amongst lush Banyan Trees, the area also boasts BBQ facilities, children’s playgrounds and a healing garden. Those who want to work on their fitness will find plenty of facilities to suit their needs, including pedestrian paths, a skate plaza, rock climbing area and various fitness stations. On the weekend, the Esplanade Market comes alive with local vendors showcasing handmade crafts, such as jewellery, homewares and beauty products in addition to a range of live musicians performing to visitors relaxing on the lawn.

Easily reached from many of the city’s major landmarks, the Cairns Esplanade is found by utilising the city’s extensive bus system. From the Cairns Airport, the Cairns Esplanade is only a short distance via public transportation, or by car or taxi. For active travellers, Cairns has many shared paths suitable for walkers and cyclists throughout the city.

Dating back to 1876, the Cairns Esplanade has been a centre point of the city since the first explorers trenched through the lush mangrove swamps. After the area had been surveyed, it was named Troughton Esplanade after the Travelling Superintendent of the Australian Steam Navigation Company, Captain Fred Troughton. These original city plans were revised and eventually led to the shortening of the name to simply “Esplanade”.
