Sarong / Pareo … where to buy in Cairns?. Looking for sarongs that are different and make unique gifts. There are many sarong shops that sell sarongs/pareos in Cairns and the cost, quality and design vary greatly.
The best sarongs we found were out by the beach just 10-15 minutes from Cairns City Centre at the Cairns Beaches Tourist Information Centre. Yes a surprise find, Not only a very helpful Cairns Tourist Information Centre, with great knowledge of Cairns tours, but they also have a range of unique gifts and presents including a fantastic sarong range.
They had quality sarongs with beautiful tropical designs that made great presents. Being light weight, they dry easily. These were ideal to use at the beach or out on The Great Barrier Reef.
There are many cheap sarongs in Cairns but the quality can be poor. So we were really pleased to buy beautiful sarongs complete with the buckle.

We really loved the sarong accessories like the buckles made out of coconut shell. They have a big range of sarongs accessories, made out of both, wood and coconut shell in many designs.
