Swim, ride and play

Cairns Esplanade is a great hub of activity for the whole family to enjoy. Not only is it a leisurely ride, but the esplanade is also home to the Cairns Swimming Lagoon. The Cairns Swimming Lagoon is a wonderful gathering place for both locals and tourists to swim, sunbake and exercise. There is also The Esplanade Boardwalk, a place for little children and family to learn to swim and play.
