Cairns Esplanade

The boardwalk along the water is busy in the morning with walkers and runners and bike riders.  The lagoon opens at 6am and there was a swimmer ready to go in right on opening time.
The curve of the benches accommodates shorter and longer legs and echoes the shape of a gentle, shallow, wave.
 The end caps look very decorative to me.
This enormous mosaic is called Telescopus by Dominic Johns.  It is made of iridescent and phosphorescent tiles and Chillagoe marble.
 What a lovely design on the reverse side.
