What a fantastic addition to the Cairns esplanade! There is a SAFE and FREE playground for children of all ages and the water park is a must for the younger ones and a bit of fun for the older. All this with a cafe and coffee for the mums and dads! A cheaper and more relaxed alternative to may of... More

A beautifully laid out playground directly at the Esplanade that could keep children from 1 – 10 years old busy for days. Very nice water-plays, climbing frames and play areas – well designed with imagination and safety in mind. All free and easy to walk into. There are seats for the parents (maybe a few more would be good) to... More

I saw this feature while I was walking on the Esplanade and stopped for a look. The noise level convinced me that parents and kids were having a great time. I have never seen a free, fun, play park like this with so many activities but all of them safe. A large, shaded area with water features for kids to... More

Suited mainly for younger kids, up to about 6-7 yrs of age. Mine (ages 10 and 12) were a bit bored. Esplanade Pool much better. Toilets and changing areas helpful.

Good spot to rest while wandering the Esplanade. The café sells all sorts of drinks, snacks, meals, etc. They will even cater for a kids party!
