Queensland’s Tropical North is bursting with flavor! Whether you’re into rooftop dining or a casual meal by the water.
For a true taste of the tropics, head to MOKU Bar and Grill inside the Novotel Cairns Oasis Resort. The menu features traditional Fijian and Hawaiian dishes as well as signature items like Vegan Calamari made from young coconuts. The chefs use local ingredients like Far North Queensland pineapples to highlight these flavoursome meals.
Now – you probably wouldn’t expect the Cairns Aquarium to be next on our list of places to eat out but stick with us! ‘Aquarium by Twilight’ – Dine with Sharks is a unique dining experience, with a side-serve of marine education. Before guests sit down to dinner in the oceanarium, they’re taken on a private tour of the aquarium – a rare chance to observe how life underwater changes as the sun starts to set. Watch as smaller fish start to slow down for the night, while sharks become lively and alert. Luckily for diners, those prying eyes can’t get a hold of your dinner.
An essential ingredient to any culinary quest is a thirst-quenching drink, which means a visit to Hemingway’s Brewery is essential when in Cairns. It’s a stalwart on the local craft beer scene and its location in the heritage-listed Cairns Wharf has seen it become the city’s most popular hangouts, thanks mainly to its water views across the Trinity Inlet.
As the sun starts to set on this divine place, you’ll find hungry hoards flocking to higher ground. Oak & Vine is the city’s popular rooftop bar and restaurant. It’s known for shaking up some of the best-looking cocktails around and, as for the food, well that has to be eaten to be believed!
