The Lagoon allows for up to 1000 swimmers at anyone time and the Kids can enjoy building sand castles on the sandy edges.
The lagoon is surrounded by landscaped gardens, picnic tables and public BBQ’s for the family to enjoy and includes public change-rooms and toilets.
On the weekend the area comes alive with the Cairns Esplanade markets showcasing local, quality stalls selling contemporary jewellery, woodcraft, pottery, locally made handcrafted goods, clothes, skincare and so much more.
