The people of Cairns really have perfected the ways in which they perform the art of leisure. The city supports them by having created a beautiful esplanade. The esplanade that is situated along the ocean shore provides e.g. a park, children’s playgrounds, a public swimming pool, electric barbeques, and fitness training facilities. All these facilities are properly maintained, cared for by the city as well as the general public and can freely be used by everybody. Coming from Europe it is amazing to see that there still are societies where people care for their surroundings. There were no signs of vandalism.
