A signature landmark of any seaside town is its boardwalk. One of the best places to actually experience the city and see what the residents of that place are made up of, the boardwalk is perennially brimming with activity. The esplanade at Cairns is no exception to the rule. The best way to experience the vibe is to simply take a walk along boardwalk. Street art, trees providing shady respite from the sun, a swimming lagoon cut from the ocean and picnic and barbeque spots for families to bond and children to play are just some of the enticing factors. While the boardwalk is free for all, availing of the different activities each have their own fixed price.
