Swimming Lagoon and Promenade

For fun in the sun, be sure to spend time at the Esplanade Boardwalk. The esplanade's swimming lagoon features safe swimming in crystal clear tropical seawater. There are even sandy banks where you can sunbathe and enjoy the beautiful weather. Before or after swimming, be sure to explore the boardwalk, which stretches for about three kilometers. The boardwalk features various displays devoted to the region's flora and fauna, Australia's Aboriginal heritage, and the city's history. This wonderful Cairns staple are also easy on the wallet - the boardwalk and lagoon are free to enjoy.
