Cairns Esplanade and Lagoon

The lagoon is a vast, salt-water swimming pool patrolled by lifeguards. It’s free from the stingers (box jellyfish) and saltwater crocodiles that are found in the sea around this area. The Esplanade is a venue for Saturday markets and live concerts. There are sandy shores, grassed areas and a boardwalk. Use the telescope provided to watch seabirds – there’s also an information board to help with identification.
