Cairns Entertainment precinct is mainly along Spence Street, which runs perpendicular to the Esplanade, towards the southern end.
Everything to cocktail bars to pubs, clubs and nightclubs can be found by the waterfront and the CBD

But there are so many bars crammed into this area that there is something for everyone.
Guaranteed, the morning sun will rise before you’ve had a chance to visit every bar on this street.
