About Family Friendly For Cairns

While vacationing in Cairns, there are plenty of family friendly attractions that will appeal to the whole family.   With a variety of wildlife parks, the Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park and the Cairns Esplanade and local beaches, you will be able to find something for everyone in the family.

The Cairns Wildlife Dome, Cairns Tropical Zoo and Cairns Night Zoo wildlife parks give you the opportunity to see some of Australia's most famous animals.  You can see snake and crocodile feeding shows, get your photo taken while you cuddle a koala and get to feed kangaroos.  Children will love the opportunity to become friends with some of the furry creatures found at the zoo.

The Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park is a great place for the family to visit during the day.  Daytime at the park you can learn about the history of the Tjapukai people, their creation story and see a live dance performance.  Try your hand at spear and boomerang throwing, getting a boomerang to come back to you is not as easy as it seems!  For children aged 5 to 14 there is a free special ‘Bibunbay’ Kids Program at the park.  Kids can learn how to play the didgeridoo, boomerang throwing, learn about bush food and medicine and have their face painted in traditional patterns and colours.

Cairns residents are very proud of the Esplanade which in recent years has had some great improvements to make it even more enjoyable.  It is place where locals and tourists can relax on the many grassy areas, take a walk along the boardwalk, or go swimming in the large swimming lagoon.  The area is alcohol and glass free and has lifeguards on duty during opening hours.  After a swim, why not use the free Barbeque facilities to cook yourself a great Aussie BBQ lunch!  

Down at the Cairns Esplande you will also find Muddy's Water playground.  This is a great fun free place for children to cool down on the colourful playground equipment, which includes a flying fox, play house and various water jets.  Just a short walk from Muddy's you will also find Australia's largest skate park, a popular spot with teenagers.

Trinity beach, Palm Cove and Yorkeys Knob are some great local beaches that are a short drive from Cairns city, also reachable on the local bus.  Great spots to enjoy the beach, sun and sand with swing parks and barbeque facilities.
