Cairns Accommodation

Cairns Shopping

From superb air-conditioned shopping centres to boutique craft shops, Cairns has retail therapy for everyone. Fashionable resort wear and designer labels complement handcrafted clothes of every description, not to mention the swimwear and shoes. Buy your rugged Australian outback gear such as RM Williams and Drizabones here in preparation for wilder travels. Stroll the tropical streets lined with trees for individual shops and boutiques.

The Cairns shopping precinct offers a number of popular retailers as well as local markets. Some of the top shopping malls in the region include The Pier at the Marina, Cairns Central, DFS Galleria, Orchid Plaza, DFO and Stocklands. At these malls you’ll find everything from mainstream brands to designer luxury labels such as Louis Vuitton, Coach and Gucci. You’ll also find heavy discounts at factory outlets where you can find 100s of brand names for less. Whether you’re just window shopping, spending up a storm or hunting down a bargain, Cairns shopping has plenty to choose from.

Cairns also offers some fantastic local markets which are ideal for picking up local arts and crafts as well as some of the wonderful fresh local and regional produce. You’ll also find plenty of little tourist shops scattered around town, selling all kinds of knick knacks and souvenirs such as furry kangaroos and koalas, Aboriginal artwork, boomerangs, didgeridoos, postcards and printed t-shirts.

Welcome relief from the sun and sand of the beach, Cairns shopping is a great way to spend the day. Cool off in the air conditioning and enjoy a long leisurely lunch and maybe even a cheeky beer or two. Don’t spend all your money during the day though, a visit to the Cairns Night Markets is an absolute must for any visitor to Cairns and particularly for shopaholics. One of the most famous attractions in Cairns, the night markets are a fun way to spend an evening taking in entertainment and live music while indulging in a few drinks with friends and sampling some gourmet local food.
