Esplanade Lagoon Pool offers one of the best places to beat the Cairns heat. Look out on the Barrier Reef and Trinity inlet from this 4,800 sq m (51,666 sq ft) saltwater lagoon. The lagoon water is saltwater from the inlet run through a filtration system. The sandy perimeter provides material for sand castles, and kids can wade in the lagoon's shallow water. To relax, recline on the timber deck beneath a shady tree. By using our Cairns day trip website, you can arrange your visit to Esplanade Lagoon Pool and other attractions in Cairns.

  • This is a pleasant walk any time of the day watching the ships come in or just to look around. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants you can choose from.

  • Fantastic free pool. Small sand area by the water but mostly surrounded by concrete. Shallow and deep aspects of the pool. Toilets and change rooms close by. Baby change space has no shower/toilet which made cleaning our youngest difficult. Fair amount of shade surrounding the pool. Some free parking in close proximity, but mostly paid parking. Food shops small walking distance away. Coffee shop onsite that sells frequently needed items (sunscreen, hats etc).
  • Love this place, it never disappoints. It's always clean and well maintained and even though it's been a number of years since our last visit it was still a reliable spot of entertainment and relaxation. Kids loved it.
