    Lovely strolling along the pathways but didn’t get a chance to dip my toes in the lagoon. Apparently its shaped like Queensland. Next trip I’m aiming to walk through it at night especially as there’s also some night entertainment whilst enjoying the cool waters.

    Not a bad place to visit if the heat is getting to you, but staying at a hotel with a pool would be a much better option. OR what I'd really reccommend is doing a day trip to one of the islands and go swimming/snorkling there

    Awesome hostel in a perfect location right across the street from the Cairns Esplanade Lagoon. Short walk (5 min) to the ferry terminal where Great Barrier Reef cruises depart. Right next to the Night Markets. Great WiFi and there is a beautiful patio on the 4th floor with a great view. There is also a common lounge and large kitchen. Rooms and bathrooms were nice, shower was great.
