  • Had to have a look at Rustys market while in Cairns. Tropical fruits and other produce interesting but otherwise not much else except for a few other stalls selling bits and pieces.  more »

  • Love Rusty's. It's all about the fruit and veg... the only thing is deciding which stall to buy from, because there's so many!!! Skybury red papayas are the best!!! Nothing else compares now... happy shopping! Oh and don't forget to take your own bag. I forgot and stuff gets heavy!!!
  • This is THE place for fresh organic locally grown produce at great prices. Also street food that is true to this style of cuisine. Coffee, pastries and home made pies. Definitely something for everyone. We loved it.
  • Always a bargain to be had if you look hard enough. By no means "flash" and some days are better than others but it's nice the way stall holders have been here for years. Nice place to catch up for a casual feed/lunch at the "food court" end. No public toilets anymore tho.
  • Love this place! Breakfast then a walk around all the stalls seeing all of the different fruit and vegetables. Great way to spend a morning.
  • Great selection of fresh fruit and veg. Quite a number of food options ranging from japanese to french crepes worth checking out. There's a popular sugarcane drink stall that always has a queue. You even get quality live music performances as entertainment. Worth visiting.

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.
