    This is a very safe place to swim in Cairns.

    The beach and bay is not the safest for swimming.

    There are lifeguards on duty.

    Sand is lovely white and manicured each day.

    Big pool and lots for kids to do.

    Large area in park like location.

    Enjoy.

    10/10 place for kids! Bring bathers and change of clothes kids loved it. Water was cold but on a sunny day that wouldn’t be a problem and it didn’t stop our kids from getting wet anyway.

    We didn’t stay at casino but decided to go here for late breakfast. Small menu not a large selection of items available. Small serves as well , a little expensive for what you are getting as well!

    A great place for an outing with the kids.
    Worth the visit. You need a couple of hours.
    The creek/river near by is easily accessible.

    Very well run place by management. I had an issue with a staff members not honouring the free second hour promotion. I contacted them through fb and they were very apologetic, professional and dealt with it superbly. People need to remember that these things can happen with young staff and it usually only takes a quick conversation to correct. Don't jump to early conclusions based on one issue. My son had a great time both times we went (second was complimentary to make up for issue).

    Note that the actual name of this venue is “Cairns Skating Centre”.

    This is Cairns only roller skating venue and is a bit hidden out the back of Manunda in a part of Cairns I had never been to before. I loved the old-school vibe – as I walked in I felt like I was transported back to the 90s when I started to going to skating rinks as a teenager and first learned how to skate.

    I came with some friends I hadn’t roller skated for many years so hugged the sides for the first few rounds but eventually got confident and started speeding up and leaving my training wheels behind.

    The patrons were mostly families and younger kids. One thing to note is there is not a lot of space to sit down in between skating. If it is busy you will need to grab a table early and somehow claim it for the night.

    The vibe was friendly and relaxed. The café serves drinks and basic hot takeaway food such as hot chips and pies. It was very affordable too, at only $10 entry with $5 for skate hire for 3 hours of skating. The staff planned competitions for those interested every hour or so like most skating rinks. They also have roller hockey and skate clubs for avid skaters which you can get involved with.

    It is currently closed due to COVID-19 restrictions but hopefully Cairns Skating Centre will be back in business again soon.

    A good place to tire the kids out. Lots of different activities, just a pity you can't excess the bigger jumping castle from both sides without walking around the net.
    Very friendly and helpful staff.
    We will be back for sure.

    We turned up today only to find the whole place has closed down and no one has bothered to update the web. Probably local knowledge but if you’re from out of town, it was very disappointing for our kiddies 😕

    THE ROOM WAS AWSOME, we did Hansel and Gretel and the art was so well done, it felt like we really were in the witches cottage.

    The puzzles were so clever and well thought out, I love how I needed to change my was of thinking to solve each puzzle and that I needed to use all of my senses, a real brain teaser and great for beginners. 10/10 we'll be back.
