Bed & Breakfast
“It is a secluded freshwater swimming hole, hidden in a tropical rainforest. A series of small waterfalls flow into large pools surrounded by large impressive granite boulders. Rainforest trees hang over the mountain water, keeping it cool and refreshing. There are also council managed and cleaned BBQ and picnic tables in the area with a toilet/change room block close-by. For most, the only way of discovering the presence of Crystal Cascades is by being told by a local, or unwittingly following road signs to the unique surrounding places.”

Einkaufszentrum
“Cairns Central Shopping Centre in north Queensland is Cairns’ largest shopping centre, built over the Cairns Railway Station. The project includes a suspended car park deck, station entries, ticketing, retail and tourist facilities. The new Cairns Railway Station was the first stage of the multimillion dollar Cairns Shopping Centre development, which was opened in late 1997. It is only the second multi-storey shopping centre in northern Queensland. Pedestrian access to the station is through the car park on the bottom floor, or a pedestrian walkway on the second floor. The centre is fully enclosed and offers an extensive range of stores and services, including the only department store north of the Sunshine Coast. It has over 180 stores together with Myer, Target, Coles, BI-LO, a six-screen cinema, Birch Carroll and Coyle complex and a 700-seat foodcourt. Some of the challenges overcome by Multiplex during construction of the shopping centre were the continued interruptions caused by Tropical Cyclone Justin in early 1997. Multiplex went on to deliver the Cairns Railway Station and Centre works, which have become the focus of the Cairns Esplanade.”

“For those with children looking for a great way to entertain but on a budget, you can easily spend a few hours in the Playground. It has different sections for each age group - even better the location is ideal as you look out to sea. Sit back and have a coffee and watch your children play, or just take in the beautiful views.”
