“Not really an 'attraction' but a good walk”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

Perfectly located boardwalk for a stroll. Particularly nice around 5pm when the sun goes in. Late at night, it's a little intimidating walking up there.

“Strollin' along....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2012

The Esplanade boardwalk is good for just relaxing, strolling along and watching the world at play. On the waterside there is a lot to see, not least the boats and ships on their way to the reef and elsewhere. In the water and at the edge there are lots of birds, egrets, gulls, pelicans, waders, divers and goodness knows what else. Depending on the tide there are hermit crabs and other wriggly sea things. On the land side people laze about, BBQ on lawns under the shelter of trees, or just amble along. Towards the town there are lots of cafes and shops across the road and it's not too difficult to cross to them.

“A nice place to walk and enjoy Cairns at your own pace”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2012

I loved the boardwalk. It's clean and a nice path to walk while enjoying Cairns, with plenty of options to sit and rest, even sun loungers!
