Cairns Travel Guide

Shopping

Shops selling pearls are fairly widespread in Cairns, with a huge price range. You can find real A-grade pearls from the Torres Strait - not cheap, but at the end more than fair in comparison to the European or US prices for the same quality level.

Cairns Esplanade MarketsThe Esplanade @ The LagoonPhone: +61 7 4044 3044Hours: Saturday 8-4PMPrice: from $0.50Esplanade Markets have home made products, rare stones, clothes, all types of art, massage, local music, local rainforest timbers/carvings/wooden copping boards and you will be buying from the maker/artist of the products. Heaps of budget priced stuff, but some very refined high art/design/ideas that could easily become a feature piece of a house/garden. Great place to find a special gift. And best of all it has a 'locals feel' about it. Make sure go take a hat and sunscreen as it's an outdoor market. Have fun and meet some locals.
