  • Not a bad center for shopping, has some specialty clothing and retail shops but its usually pretty crowded and parking can be a bit troublesome sometimes. Overall not a bad place but I usually go here only when I need to. Food court has all of big franchises and mostly oriental based food stores but you'll always find something for lunch.
  • A small shopping centre with all the needs in it. Except of boxing day it is easy to find a parking place. The centre is in the centre of Cairns what makes it easy to access.
  • Good range of shops but it's tourist central. Do not go here if you want to duck in and out quickly. Plenty of parking and a decent food court. Plenty of variety, it's just the foot traffic that sucks.
  • Well laid out, great stores, plenty of amenities and modern parenting rooms. Unfortunately the toilet downstairs near the centre cafe is not well maintained. Can't say I'm impressed with the parking. It's free for 3 hours which is great but it used to be that the card you get upon entering the carpark had the time you arrived printed on it so you could monitor your time. Now, that same card no longer has the time you arrived on it so you could easily overstay and end up having to pay. Bit tricky of them doing that. Not cool.
  • Visit Coast Roast and the management and staff couldn't do enough for you. The coffee and food is good and presented well. I'll make it one of regular stops.

Where to stay in Cairns

Though Cairns seems to offer an endless selection of cozy rooms, most budget-friendly options remain fully booked through the high season, stretching from June to September. Reserve early if you want a hotel room packed with amenities, or look for alternative lodgings in the city's smaller inns. As the backpacker capital of northern Queensland, Cairns features dozens of economical hostels providing comfortable beds and free Wi-Fi. For something far more luxurious, look for centrally located rental apartments with spacious rooms and harbor views.
