Sea Breeze Laundry is simply just that, simply a breeze! A leasehold business located within a popular Cooktown waterfront complex on the Webber Esplanade the facility is used by locals and tourists alike. While clients wait for their laundry to finish they can take in a spot of fishing from the nearby main wharf, take a stroll down Cooktown’s amazing waterfront precinct or step next door for a tasty snack and fresh coffee overlooking the harbour.
