Night Market
“The Night Markets is a national treasure in Cairns! Located on the Esplanade this is a must do/see!!! For relaxation, get a fully clothed body massage for twenty dollars, foot spa, or just a head massage and shoulder massage. For shopping, reasonable priced gifts, oils, creams and glass blowing, along with jewelry and pearls, or kick back in the food court with the bar and an international array of very reasonably priced cuisine for the whole family. There's everything from Sushi, Thai, seafood beef, prawns lamb, at the Healthy Roast, roast of the day with all the vegetables ! Enjoy!”
