Kewarra Beach

Kewarra Beach, approximately 20 minutes north of Cairns City, is a lovely beach for swimming, playing and walking. There is a great little playground close by to the stinger net (when out) and a few free BBQ’s. There are toilets and good limited parking. The water here is quite protected and the only waves you will see are gentle lapping of the shore.


The trees around the park area allow you to sit in the shade while the little ones play. There is a good view of the beach and play equipment from the BBQ area. Although the trees give lovely shade in the park, there is no shade on the actual beach so be sun safe and/or come and play early or late in the day.

Cairns Bouldering Park

For those kids who love climbing there is a bouldering park on the esplanade. It is challenging enough to let your kids have a good hour of fun without the danger of falling from too high. If they are anything like my kids, they will probably also start climbing the beautiful tree just next to the park.
