Located 20 mins from the CBD, the Cairns Beaches or, as they are known locally, the Northern Beaches, encompass Palm Cove, Trinity, Kewarra, Clifton and Ellis beaches. Over the years Trinity Beach and Palm Cove have become major tourist destinations with five star hotels and luxury accommodation. Trinity Beach has a central commercial village in the area, with a primary school and a number of parks. The area is popular with many English-speaking overseas born residents. Palm Cove is considered one of the more “exclusive” suburbs in Cairns, with sought after, high quality accommodation options. The area has an abundance of resorts, restaurants and bars.
Located 10km north-west of central Cairns, Redlynch is a popular area for families, with private and state schools, a large shopping centre, gym and an equestrian park. Surrounded by mountains, creeks and waterfalls, the area boasts its own natural beauty. Redlynch and Redlynch Valley have both grown rapidly since the 1990’s, with the area now having a population of just over 9,000. With great infrastructure, good local facilities, plenty of walkways and parks for the family, it is clear to see why this area is one of the most popular in Cairns.
Located just 8km from Cairns CBD, Freshwater is considered to be one of better suburbs in the Cairns area with excellent connections to the city, the airport and the Northern Beaches. Freshwater Train Station is home to the Kuranda Scenic Railway, a popular departure point for tourists and locals. With a local primary school and college, parks and water holes, there are many benefits of living in leafy Freshwater.
