Fodor's Review

Cairns' heart is City Place, a lively pedestrian mall bordered by Lake and Shields streets and flanked by a handful of the town's few remaining "authentic" pubs, as well as its major shopping precinct, a craft market and performance areas. The plaza regularly hosts entertainment and community-based events, including free live entertainment on Thursday and Friday at lunchtime, and a hand-made arts and craft market, held 10–6 weekdays year-round, weather permitting.
