We just loved this resort, immaculately kept, fabulous position right on the best beach in the area, handy to everywhere if you have a car. Wonderful management. We needed and got 3 weeks of peace and quiet and sun and will definitely be back for longer next time.

The appartment was very spacious and clean. Very quietly located. The neighbourhoud is not very lively, but whether that is negative or not depends on what you want and expect. With the beach located just on the other side of the road we loved the location. But the centre of Cairns, where it is lively, is 12 km away, on... More

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

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

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....

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
