Cruise Ship Information

The Pier warmly welcomes all cruise ship passengers arriving into Cairns!

With such little time to explore our wonderful city and surroundings, we warmly invite you to come inside and enjoy our air-conditioned comfort whilst you plan to explore our tropical city.

Visiting The Pier Shopping Centre is a MUST DO!

‘The Pier’ is only a short 4-minute stroll from the Cairns Cruise Liner Terminal and open 7 days. Established in 1989, the Pier is Cairns’s only waterfront shopping centre, and unlike any other Shopping Centre in Cairns – all the retail outlets are 100% locally owned businesses. Highlights for cruise ship passengers include:

  • Booking and Information Centre experienced in short, medium or overnight tourist activities.
  • Free wifi at various outlets.
  • You will find local and international fashion labels, swimwear, menswear, and boutique specialty shops plus health & wellness outlets to soothe your soul.
  • Open 7 days for sunrise breakfasts, relaxing lunches, and dining at our various award-winning waterfront restaurants. A variety of entertainment venues are open until late.
