Cairns Esplanade Bouldering
2022 day change – NOW WEDNESDAY’S

Part of the Cairns Regional Council Active Living Program,Topknot Climbing is proud to provide weekly Cairns Esplanade Bouldering sessions. Firstly these sessions are free. Secondly, guidance and climbing shoes are included. And thirdly the Boulder Park is situated on the scenic Cairns Esplanade. Session times are 5-6pm every Wednesday.

Finally, the aim of these free sessions is fun and to provide an enjoyable but challenging workout. So overall a relaxed session. But the choice to go hard is yours.

There are three main Boulders and a Roof section. Plus a small boulder for the little ones. All up there are thirty plus colour graded Routes or “Problems”. And they all start with a Sit-start and finish on top (Top-out). For safety we recommend to practice “down climbing”. Down climbing will also increase your general climbing skill and technique.


Directions via google maps

Colour graded routes:

Yellow- Easy.
Red- Medium.
Blue- Medium/Hard
Orange- Hard.
Black- Extreme.

Try a Boulder “Traverse”, so climb around instead of up.
And the roof section offers multiple roof crossings including Dyno’s, Dead-Point moves and challenging Top-out’s.
The Toddlers Boulder is covered in holds to keep your little grommets engaged.

Again, climbing shoes and experienced instruction are provided.

So whatever age, level of fitness and experience. There are many problems to solve at the Cairns Esplanade Bouldering Park.

What to bring:

A pair of socks for the shoes provided.
Twenty pairs are available in a variety of sizes.
But of course, If you have your own climbing shoes bring them along 🙂

Wednesday’s from 5-6 pm
No bookings necessary,
Just rock up!

The Cairns Esplanade Bouldering sessions are a great introduction in-to the world of climbing. Topknot Climbing offer a range of further climbing options to take your climbing experience to the next level.
