Fronting Cairns Harbour, this boardwalk is the focal point of life in Cairns. Along the walk you'll encounter shady trees and public art, picnic and barbecue facilities, a large saltwater swimming lagoon, volleyball courts, an imaginative kids' playground, state-of-the-art skate plaza, and areas for fitness, markets, and live entertainment. A shallow, 4,800-square-meter (51,667-square-foot) saltwater lagoon swimming pool with a sandy shore, decking, and shelters, patrolled by lifeguards year-round, provides free, convenient relief from the often sticky air. Along the street opposite, you'll find shops, galleries, and eateries.

Its a fun date spot with lots to do without spending lots of money. I enjoy the evenings here when the lights hit the harbour. If you bring a date here, be sure to arrive in time to watch the sunset. Its not something to miss.
