Holloways Beach is about 10 mins drive north of Cairns, so the Cairns Beach resort tag is misleading. However Holloways is a much nicer beach with sand not mud flats and it's a lovely location. The resort is set in well kept beautiful tropical gardens with a beautiful swimming pool, and it is right across the road from the patrolled... More

We stayed here for 6 nights and other then its great location opposite the beach, the manger and room were both unpleasant. -We booked and paid for our accommodation through an online booking site and upon arrival the manager would not honour the daily boxed breakfast which was part of the room rate claiming that they had no reference to...

Great big apartments with big rooms. Unfortunate no elevator, which is handy for older people. It is called a resort, but it has no restaurant or such. The location is near quiet beach. Enough parking space, car recommended to see surroundings.

This is a really great place to stay for a quiet beach holiday - literally opposite the beach! The apartment is clean, with all you need. It is opposite a wonderful cafe with delicious food. The pool is nice, but a little cool for me. The owners are very friendly and helpful. There is a courtesy bus to the nearby... More

This is a perfect little gem of a resort, metres from the beach and far enough away from the city without being remote. Clean and perfect for our needs. Would most definitely stay there again if I were ever back in Cairns.

We stayed for 10 nights and found it very nice. Quiet location not too far from any attractions that we wanted to see. We found that it worked out cheaper and more convenient for us as a family to hire a small car for a week rather than use public transport, but there is a bus stop only about 20... More

My partner and I stayed at this resort for 3 nights as part of deciding whether to live in the area/suburb of Holloways Beach. We were very pleasantly surprised with the style of accommodation, quite, clean and closeness to most things useful to us. We used this place a springboard to our current residence. Worth a stay for couples or... More

Got back today from a 4 night stay at Australis. For $135 a night for self-contained on the beach, my expectations weren't too high, however, it is rated 4* so I did expect better. For this price I would expect things like general wear & tear, and a lack of added luxuries, but definitely not the lack of cleanliness that... More

We are sorry that the room did not meet your expectations but if you had advised us of the problems with the cleaning we would have had our cleaners come back to fix them. We have received your feedback form and thank you for filling this out. More

Slightly overpriced rooms and bath poor and not clean as it should and could be but good option for the family, very handy the pool because the see swiming isn't pleasant because of the brown water and jellies and crocos warant table. Ocean view rooms has no added value as they look to the Street and to the bad smell... More

I last wrote a review on this property in September 2014 and just want to add that everything was as good as before or even better. We had a great room with sea views so it was lovely sitting on the balcony enjoying the outlook. This is our 5th visit to this resort each time being in different rooms and... More
