We stayed with at Galvin’s B&B for a week during our Cairns get away. We couldn’t have picked better accommodation. In fact, the wonderful, self contained two bedroom apartment, stunning swimming pool and enchanted garden made it hard to go exploring! Jessie and Julie greeted...More

We found Galvin's Edge on AirBnB, and though the Air site was frustrating, staying at Galvin's Edge was definitely NOT! Julie and Jesse have a bit of paradise tucked away just on the outskirts of Cairns, and our two night stay with my partner, my...More
