    I have to congratulate for the person who had the idea to combine a secular tree with a playground. The result is a half natural playground, where children have a great fun, and also can put question ...  more »

  • Great playground around beautiful fig tree. Pier 1 cafe nearby too.
  • Great spot for the kids to run around, in an amazing old tree. Our 3 year old had a ball!
  • The whole area is good for families with the Fig Tree Play Ground, Cruise Ship Terminal, gardens, lawns, extensive hardwood decks and views across Trinity Inlet to numerous mountains. Our 6-year-old daughter alternated between playing in the Fig Tree Treehouse and riding around it on her Razor scooter. The town centre is 300 metres away and has plenty of food and drink choices for an easy picnic lunch. The Wharf One Cafe offers a more up tempo space. It allows adults to chat for hours and watch the kids playing.
  • A great play area for children that doesn't rely on the standard playground equipment of a slide and some swings.
  • Good playground for independent players. Some of the low boughs can be a little hazardous to adults.

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.
