Shields Street hotels
Shields Street is the perfect blend of old and new. Several of the structures on this thoroughfare still retain a period design, bringing back memories of the 19th century, when Cairns was still in its infancy; adding to this impression is the fact that the street is paved, rather than tarmacked. Beautiful palms and a number of tree species adorn this road, adding a touch of nature that softens what would have been a purely concrete jungle. The street is home to a museum, restaurants, and a number of retail outlets.
- Walk along Shields Street, and take special note of the building that hosts the Night Owl convenience stores, and another named Hides Corner; these retain the design that was prevalent when Cairns was a nascent urban centre.
- Learn about the area's history at the Cairns Museum, located in City Place, a shopping mall at the corner of Shields and Lakes Streets.
- Enjoy a cup of something hot at Hides Coffee cafe, a restaurant located at Hides Corner building.
Shields Street is located between Lake and Grafton Streets, in Cairns, Australia. One of the most convenient ways of getting to this picturesque thoroughfare is by taxi. Cabs can be easily found at several points in the city, particularly near establishments frequented by tourists, such as hotels. Visitors can also opt to get to Shields Street by hired car. There are several car rental companies in the city, and these offer excellent services at a relatively reasonable cost. One can also hire a bicycle and ride to the popular road; the city is quite bike friendly.
