Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Queensland / Cairns Region / Cairns / Esplanade Lagoon Pool
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.

Esplanade Lagoon Pool Reviews
An awesome little spot to cool down. It's a lovely spot to just relax and chill. You can take a picnic and use the BBQs there, or just nip across the street and grab a feed. more »
A nice place to hang out when it was hot and sweaty in Cairns. Good location, clean changing rooms and a lot of life guards around the area. more »
What a great free public space to enjoy. Safe and clean and big enough so you are not swimming on-top of others. Very family friendly. Nice lawn areas around also.
Hey, it's free! What's not to love?! You get a great view while cooling off and they also have free community classes in the morning. A schedule is up to check out. Showers with lockers are also available right alongside to take the stress out of losing car keys etc while you relax with a police beat on the shore as well as security cameras everywhere. Safe, secure and clean they're also patrolled by lifeguards during the day.
