Around Australia – Cairns’ Esplanade

We’ve had a great little getaway in cairns this July. The walk along the shore in Cairns is actually really well presented, with a long board walk and heaps of activities for the kids with play grounds that incorporate water and a pool. I was really impressed.

There’s plenty of grass to stretch out on and just lie back and relax. The weather hasn’t been that warm, mid-twenties Celsius at best, but that is still double or more what it has been in Melbourne this year. We laid back on the grass and listened to a band play some tunes whilst others did likewise, or played Frisbee, or even lay back in one of those Inflatable Air Lounge Hangout things which suddenly seem to be popular. We saw several using them. You know the ones, I’m always seeing ads on TV and Facebook for them.
