First rate B&B complemented by professional, informative & friendly owners. Supurb location and beautiful landscaping. Both rooms face the lake and it is a peaceful, relaxing oasis. Central to all of the sights around Cairns and a couple of great restaurants nearby. The beach is lovely too which you can walk to.

Stayed here in September 06 for four nights as the first stop on a mini tour of Australia. What a place to start!
