Prawn Star

Top choice seafood in Cairns

Trawler restaurant Prawn Star is tropical dining perfection: clamber aboard and fill yourself with prawns, mud crabs, oysters and whatever else was caught that day, while taking in equally delicious harbour views. A second boat – Prawn Star Too – was added to the eat-fleet in mid-2017, but seating is still limited and much in-demand: get there early.

Why the Cairns waterfront isn't lined with restaurants like this is a mystery.
