Pier Marketplace

The Pier Marketplace is a seaside shopping mall that is next to the Esplanade in Cairns in Far North Queensland. The Pier Marketplace is one of the most popular destinations in the city, as it offers upscale boutiques, specialty stores, art galleries, and both trendy and casual dining and drinking establishments. Best of all is the view, as the modern, indoor shopping centre overlooks Marlin Marina and Trinity Bay. Several hotels, top attractions, and the Reef Fleet Terminal are within easy walking distance of the shopping mall.

  • Shop for holiday necessities, cool Cairns souvenirs, or the latest fashions at the two-levels of stores in the Pier Marketplace, where shoppers can find great deals and popular stores such as Between the Flags.
  • Grab a tasty lunch or dinner in a great atmosphere at The Pier Bar & Grill, one of Cairns’ most popular places to eat filling fare at good prices and with a nice view over the city.
  • Go swimming in the huge salt-water Esplanade Lagoon nearby, or take a stroll along the scenic boardwalk, which is often the scene for live music and entertainment.

The Cairns International Airport is the main gateway to the region, and from there visitors can easily get to Cairns as well as the Pier Marketplace. Visitors can board a train from the airport to the Cairns Railway Station, which is only about one kilometre from the Pier Marketplace. Visitors can make the rest of the journey on foot or hail a taxi. Visitors can also take a bus to the Cairns Abbott Street Station, which is located 100 metres or so from the Pier Marketplace. There are plenty of shops and restaurants along the Esplanade, making it a nice stroll.

Very basic accommodation
I paid for the upgraded room and all I found was a very basic room... Didn't venture up to the pool as heard that I shouldn't bother. Next time I'd save my money and just book the basic room.
