Attractions near Rydges Esplanade Resort Cairns
Unwind and revitalise
Holidays are a time to relax and rejuvenate, get away from the pressures of everyday life and have some real "time out". Situated within the Rydges complex is the Body Mind Breath: Cairns Yoga Centre, which runs classes for all levels of experience in a peaceful garden setting.
After your workout, you can find a snack on the premises in the Coral Hedge Brasserie Restaurant & Bar, which serves a full buffet breakfast in the morning, an à la carte option in the evening and a tasty tapas menu all day. If you’d prefer to cater to your own needs, stock up at the local Rusty's Market and head to the Esplanade for an impromptu barbecue. There are a number of free-to-use barbecues dotted along the foreshore.
Embrace the Esplanade
The Esplanade is easily one of Cairn’s best features. For many years, the city’s position by the sea was ignored and the focus was on inland residential development for shelter from the weather in cyclone season. Now the two-and-a-half-kilometre walkway along the shoreline is a mecca for both locals and visitors, with landmarks and recreational facilities spread along its length.
Wander beneath the flame-coloured petals of the Cassia Rainbow Shower trees and enjoy the beauty of this little corner of Cairns. Browse souvenirs at the craft market held on Saturdays, work up a sweat at the free-to-use beach volleyball area, or realign your chakras in the beautiful bamboo-lined Healing Garden.
