Cairns Night Markets

Held nightly, they're often packed with a wide range of souvenirs and local crafts. Great place to find deals in Cairns in particular custom items there is a glass blower, a amazing air brush artist that does hats and tees. Tons of massage places Chinese buffet food and many clothing shops the best crepes in Cairns is right out the back door onto Abbott street. Great thing to do with the whole family.
