The Mercure Cairns Harbourside is located at the far end of the Esplanade, a little bit of a walk from the city centre (about half an hour). They do however have a free shuttle service on the hour from 10am to 10pm. While we did not eat in house, the menu of both restaurants / cafes looked OK and the... More
