Walking along this boardwalk, day or night is spectaculars. You not only get to see the myriad of restaurants along the sea front but also get to walk along the seaside surrounded by park and a great walking path. It is well lit at night time and is a perfect place to stroll and absorb the beauty of this city.

This 0.6 miles of walk along the shore is truly pleasant. At the quiet north end is a good spot in the morning and evening to watch birds when the tide is right but also in the trees. The south end is busy with the public and very large swimming pool and further on the yacht harbor. There are places to eat along the Esplanade as well. A place to spend a leisurely hour or two at any time during an August day.

What a fabulous place along the Esplanade boardwalk at Cairns.
The mangroves have been removed , however the beauty of the massive tidal movements is a sight to see. When tide is low the muddy flats are a birdwatchers delight with many bird species probing the rich sediments for food. A resident flock of pelicans makes great viewing, as the esplanade boardwalk is raised they are unafraid of people viewing from above. The views across the waters are a delight at sunrise and sunset. At night the esplande is lit up and many people walk up and down .
