The Esplanade hotels
The Esplanade is a stretch of beach and promenade situated in Cairns, Australia. This spot has been a popular recreation area since the 1800s, and it has only grown in size and popularity since. Today, The Esplanade is a collection of restaurants, markets and shopping centres along the beach that draw visitors from all over Cairns. In addition to the many entertainment options, The Esplanade is the centre for all outdoor activities in Cairns, so people enjoy swimming, surfing and many other activities here. From backpackers to affluent sun worshippers, you will encounter a diverse cultural scene at The Esplanade.
- Come to Cairns on a Saturday morning, when The Esplanade comes alive with a collection of colourful markets selling everything from locally grown produce to handmade clothing and jewellery.
- Have a BBQ with friends at one of the many free barbeque and picnic areas at The Esplanade, which makes a great way to enjoy the amazing weather in Cairns with the ocean as your backdrop.
- Bring your binoculars to The Esplanade so that you won’t miss out on the diverse collection of birds that inhabit the mudflats— a perfect early morning activity for bird lovers.
The Cairns International Airport is the main gateway into the region and has many international flights, as well as short regional flights from cities in Australia. The Esplanade is located near the Cairns Station of the train, so you can just get off at this stop and walk the rest of the way. Cairns is small enough to get around on foot and there are plenty of pedestrian friendly areas around. There is also a boardwalk at The Esplanade with a dedicated bike path because cycling is one of the top activities in the area.
