Cairns Lagoon

Undoubtedly one of Cairns’ major highlights – the Lagoon is a fun, safe and friendly environment for family and friends alike.

Starting the tour

Start from City Place/the square in Lake Street (on the corner of Shields Street).

Section 1:
Directions:

From the square, turn right down Shields Street (when facing the direction of the bus station)

Stopover:

Shields Street is home to the Cairns Historical Museum (on the corner of Lake and Shields) also PJ O’ Brien’s, a friendly Irish pub that offers cheap food and is seldom quiet!

Section 2:
Directions:

Continue straight along Sheilds Street; after five to 10 minutes or so you will see the lagoon in front of you.

Stopover:

There are picnic, barbeque and kiosk amenities nearby, or, should you fancy something more substantial than ice cream, the 6km long esplanade offers many dining choices.

A visit to Cairns MUST include a visit to the Lagoon – great fun!
