“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

The board walk allows you to walk past the playgrounds, marina, coffee shops, the swimming area and watch the cruise boats come in and out of the harbour. Lots of photo opportunities and shady spots to sit and dream away. The walk is a short distance from the major hotels so anyone can do it.

“great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Every night we would go for a walk along the board walk after our dinner. It was a nice way to wind down. The board walk is wide so lots of people can be on it at one time without feeling the hussle and bussle. Nice walk and nice views and even pleasant entertainment at times

“Great way to start the day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

I lived in Cairns for 6 months and would walk along the esplanade to and from work. Really great sunrises and photo opportunities in the morning and evening. Free exercise classes along the esplanade too.

“Markets”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

We happened to stumble across the Markets along the Esplanade on the Saturday and were impressed with the selection of hand made art and craft items. unfortunately we arrived just as people were packing up so didn't get the chance to see all of what the markets has to offer

“Pretty!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Very pretty and nice. It was fun to walk the boardwalk during the day and at night. Definitely spend some time hanging out on the boardwalk and just taking in the view.
