What to do on a Sunday Afternoon

I am getting into Cairns this Sunday mid-morning and wondering what is good to do to fill in the afternoon. Any suggestions??

I would just head straight to the Cairns lagoon. The best place to spend an afternoon in Cairns!!

Yes, the lagoon on the Esplanade is a great spot, from there follow the boardwalk round past the marina and perhaps stop at Mondo's (on the waterfront below the Hilton) - the perfect spot to enjoy a 'sundowner'!

Also Rusty's markets on Sheridan Street has fantastic fresh fruit and veges plus lots of other stalls, although they may be starting to close by then - markets run from Fri-Sun.

Yep, an afternoon enjoying the sun at the lagoon and maybe a few quiet ones at Mondo's would be an excellent choice.

Rustys starts to wind down around 2pm but you might get some bargains if you are there around this time.

The Pier complex has Sunday markets as well.

Definitely also recommend the lagoon. Some of the local spots like the Pier Bar and Bella Vista do Sunday sessions from 5pm, with half price drinks and cheap woodfired pizza.

The night markets are open from 4.30pm as well.

This Sunday out at Palm Cove (if you have a car) has a taste of the tropic food festival with local restaurants offering $5 and $10 plates.

Take it easy. A visit to the lagoon and walk along the boardwalk. Soak up the lifestyle ready for your next days adventure.
