Cairns Night Markets


Well worth a visit when you're in Cairns, the Cairns Night Markets offers quality, cheap dining options and a huge range of great shopping.

Set up with more than 120 outlets, you’ll find knick-knacks, jewellery, fashion, Indigenous hand-made goods, Australian souvenirs, and more in this eclectic, vibrant market-place.

If you’re feeling peckish, grab a bowl of Vietnamese pho, or go for Chinese or sushi. Enjoy a coffee from one of the numerous cafes or a sweet treat from the ice creamery. 

There’s a reason 2.7 million tourists visit the Night Markets every year. It has everything! Need a foot massage? What about a haircut, manicure, or eye-lash extensions? Pick up a cuddly Australian koala souvenir. Or maybe you’re due to have your cards read? You will find everything here, and more.
