Stay up late at Cairns Night Markets, popular with tourists from around the world. Open late each night of the week, these markets are a collection of stalls catering mainly to foreign travelers, with vendors selling clothes, handmade crafts, souvenirs, food, beverages, and jewelry. Inspired by similar markets found all around East Asia, Cairns’ night markets were created as a convenient way for local merchants to satisfy the growing tourist demand for inexpensive but well-made local products. Today, you can visit over 130 stalls at a pleasantly air-conditioned shopping center, located on the city’s popular Esplanade. A visit to Cairns Night Markets represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Cairns travel itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

  • Multiple stalls of tacky and cheap imports. Food court with asian buffet. Really not ever worth a walk through. 
  • Price range I don't know well, but is a mixed market. Touching the product my son I was scolded because very bad impression. I think you should ask what unique souvenirs. There is food. As the name implies, morning not doing.

  • Nice enough to browse through. Just little items for last minute gift ideas. Enough to fill in some time before going to the Esplanade for dinner. 
  • Lovely place, good for souvenirs (cheaper than other stores) and they have there great churittos just on the left from entrance. Nutella one highly recommend!
  • It's a standard market, it's got standard asian cuisine. You pay x amount for a tub, then fill it up with food from a bain marie. Good economical solution to fill yer belly. Not fancy.
  • I was happy with the visit. My husband was satisfied with his 25min massage and he is pretty fussy with how well they are done. I was stoked as I found my buffalo leather sandles in my size that weren't available at Kuranda, and they were a better deal.
  • Honestly, this market has absolutely nothing worth buying. Most, if not all, of the shops there just sell crappy souveniers that can be found pretty much anywhere else in Cairns. Do not waste your time going there.
  • Nothing special about this place when it comes tourist shopping. They do have a food court that does offer cheaper fast take out food if you didnt want to spend money on the strip.
