Attractions near the Southern Cross Atrium Apartments
Meet the locals at Rusty’s Markets
Taste a juicy mangosteen, slurp on a freshly pressed fruit smoothie, listen to a melting pot of accents and languages from around the world – a morning at Rusty’s Market is much more than just an opportunity to stock up on fresh produce. This bustling farmers’ market takes over Grafton Street all day on Fridays and until 2pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
Rusty’s started over 30 years ago and has become a Cairns institution – a great place to meet and experience something of Cairns’ diverse and bohemian culture. Local farmers set up stalls early in the morning, ready to tempt customers with delectable tropical fruits, freshly caught seafood and a range of tasty international food.
A lazy afternoon by the riverside
The Mountain View Hotel is a riverside pub on the Gillies Highway in the tiny community of Gordonvale, which is only half an hour’s drive from Cairns. The large, shaded deck out the back is the perfect place to spend a lazy afternoon enjoying views over the Little Mulgrave River with a pot of properly cold beer in hand. You can even go for a swim if the mood strikes.
The Mountain View is famous for wrapping up takeaway beers to keep them cool, and for its incredibly friendly service. This classic Queenslander country pub is a favourite with locals so it may pay to phone ahead if you want to enjoy the hearty pub fare for lunch.
