Edge Hill, Queensland, Australia

Located in trendy Edge Hill, a central, relaxed location, just 10 minutes to Cairns CBD or the airport. A perfect location to explore Cairns and it's surrounds and enjoy all that the region has to offer.

Edge Hill, Cairns' most exclusive suburb, is nestled at the foot of Mount Whitfield Conservation Park, creating a lush, rainforest clad, mountain backdrop to the suburb. Enjoy a latte and breakfast at one of Edge Hills fantastic cafes before venturing into the World Heritage listed, Cairns Botanical Gardens. Established in 1886, the well-established tropical gardens feature rare and exotic plants, palms and trees and is renowned as one of Australia's best tropical displays.

The Tanks Art Centre, just moments away from the gardens, hosts music, performance, theatre and visual art exhibitions throughout the year. Just across the road, the mangrove and rainforest boardwalk leads to Centenary Lakes, a good place for a picnic, lie in the shade and read a good book, have a BBQ or a try a spot of birdwatching.

For the more energetic, enjoy a walk or run up the popular Mount Whitfield walking tracks and be rewarded with views of Cairns, the airport and across the Coral Sea to the Great Barrier Reef. The Red Arrow circuit is a popular exercise route with locals (including your hosts!) and makes a perfect 5km circuit from the house. The short, steep climb through the stunning rainforest is the perfect workout first thing in the morning!

We’re Howard and Janine, your hosts in beautiful, tropical Cairns, the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef! Both originally from the UK, our wanderlust has taken us all around Australia and South East Asia, and we have tried to reflect this in our property. Our love of scuba diving initially drew us to Cairns many years ago, where we worked as diving instructors and underwater photographers out on the reef everyday. It didn’t take long to fall in love with all the region has to offer. From the reef to the rainforest and out to the Tablelands, you’ll need more than one week to explore this area fully! And we love sharing that knowledge with our guests so they too can fall in love with tropical Cairns and all that the region has to offer.
