Cairns Night Markets and Rusty’s Market
Making the most of the tropical north’s great climate, the open-air Cairns Night Markets are a local institution. Open every night of the week at the Esplanade across from the lagoon, the markets feature an array of locally made products and artisan gifts and are the perfect place to grab dinner and snacks. Another classic Cairns market, Rusty’s is well worth a visit – especially in the morning, if you can brave the early start (5am). Operating every Friday, Saturday and Sunday since 1975, Rusty’s Market has long been a pinnacle of the Cairns foodie scene.
