“Excellent Adventure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Really enjoyed the boardwalk. We sat on the beach wall and watched the winter sun set over the mountains. You can bbq in the gardens, swim in the lagoon or just enjoy the views.

“Gorgeous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

'The Nard' as it is affectionately known is very popular, and for good reason. It is a lovely walk from end to end. Access to the beach, plenty of seating and shade along the way, as well as restaurants, the Lagoon and shopping at the city end. I love the Esplanade!

“Love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

This is my favourite area of Cairns. I find myself walking along here daily, oftem twice a day. Not only great exercise but in such pleasant surrounds. The Muddies Playground must be a delight for families and on Saturday there are the Esplanade Markets to explore.
