Bouldering Park

COVID-19 update

All recreation facilities on the Esplanade are open. Gatherings restricted to groups of 100 people.

The Bouldering Park is open every day and is free for casual use.

Bouldering is a form of rock climbing at low height so the Esplanade Bouldering Park is suitable for all ages.

There are free bouldering classes every Monday at 5pm as part of the Active Living program. We provide an instructor, chalk and shoes. The class is a great introduction to the sport and a great training venue for the more experienced. Routes are colour graded.

Please be early and bring a pair of socks if you plan on using the climbing shoes provided. There are 12 varied shoe sizes available or you may bring your own climbing shoes.

The Bouldering Park is located at the Northern Esplanade Activity Precinct near the beach volleyball courts and Cairns Hospital.
