The Skate Plaza is open from 8.30am to 9.30pm daily, including public holidays, and is free for casual use.
Skate Plaza closed due to COVID-19
Due to the unique and complex circumstances surrounding COVID-19 (Coronavirus), recreation facilities along Cairns Esplanade are now closed until further notice.
These facilities include:
- Bouldering Park
- Skate Plaza
- Beach Volleyball courts/multi use sports facilities/basketball courts
- Green Gym Fitness Stations
The Skate Plaza is one of the Cairns Regional Council's finest recreational facilities. Providing exciting recreational opportunities, the facility has been called 'one of the seven wonders of the skate park world' due to its innovative design and contextual aesthetics.
As part of the Northern Esplanade Activity Precinct the inverted cradle is a dominant feature of the Skate Plaza. The plaza has appeared in numerous skateboarding and BMX magazines and is seen as a benchmark project for active, non-structured recreational facilities.
The Skate Plaza is close to the BBQ Sea Eagle facility, has a toilet block and offers plenty of parking within walking distance.
