We have just spent five days in this wonderful part of the world. I think the location does require a car, although buses seem to pass regularly & pickups are available for all the major attractions. The complex only has a road between it and the beach & is beautifully laid out. We had one of their money saver apartments,... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would go back there without hesitation. The apartment was quiet, clean and spacious and the management was very helpful and friendly. Excellent value for money and good for those wanting a quiet restful holiday..

This was a lovely hotel in Cairns - great management team. A little way out of the town so not suitable if you wanted to go to Cairns to go out until the early morning and need to go back and forth a lot, but if you wanted a nice relaxed break then this is perfect. Close enough to the... More

Thank you for the review. You have it in one we are ideal for those that want a nice relaxing holiday. Close enough to Cairns if you want to go in for a meal but far enough away to be quiet and peaceful. We would love to have you stay with us the next time you are visiting Cairns. More

It is a short walk to the beach and a lovely cafe with great food.Bottle shop and grocery shop nearby. Much cheaper than staying in Cairns.

The Australis resort is a very nice place to stay, the apartments are spacious and clean and have everything you need. The communal area is tranquil and peaceful, The manager/owner Brad is extremely helpful and a very nice person, the downsides are the location, it is about 12 kms from Cairnes so its either a taxi ride or no alcohol....

We arrived in Cairns beach resort in the midst of Cyclone Ita and the managers could not have been more helpful. They brought in the table and chairs from the balcony and left us candles and a torch which, luckily we didn't need!

The good thing about this hotel is the size of the apartment, which suits a family with 2 little children. However, the bad things are numerous: the most important is a very poor cleanliness. The floors very dirty and sticky, especially the bathroom. We literally had to mop all the floors 3 times until they were clean. The apartment was... More

A 3 story apartment hotel set around a nice pool and garden area across the road from the quiet Holloways Beach. The 4 blocks are tropically named - Orchid Avenue, Bougainvillea Parade, Frangipani Lane and Hibiscus Court. Arrival 4/5 - easy to find on the beachfront at Holloway Beach.
