Cairns Esplanade Markets
You’ll find this marketplace in one of the most visually beautiful spots in Cairns city, right by the busy hub of the Cairns Lagoon, a man-made swimming pool on the foreshore. It accommodates a mixture of bright and colourful market stalls selling your usual tropical trinkets, hand-made clothing, art works and jewellery. So, if you like a spot of shopping while you swim, this is the market place for you.
Every Saturday, between 8am – 4pm, the market showcases items crafted by the people who sell them. The quality stalls include jewellery, leather work, pottery, airbrush tattoos, clothes, skincare and more.
Held against the scenic backdrop of the Cairns waterfront, you can follow your market shopping with a swim in the Lagoon or take advantage of the free barbeques, exercise equipment and children's playgrounds.
