Stayed here for 5 nights and it was ideal. It had all the facilities we needed - washing machine, tumble dryer and all kitchen facilities. We were left some milk, home made cookies and fresh water in the fridge. It was very clean. The only downfall was it was quite a walk to the main front where the bars and... More

These apartments are well suited to families who wish to be only a short hop to most aspects if the town. Andy & Ruth are the most accommodating hosts/hostess you could wish to meet.. Although we left with some excitement for the next leg in our journey around Australia it was with some sadness that we left some folks behind... More

Close to everything, nothing is too much trouble for managers Andy & Ruth. The apartments are clean, well equipped and located just outside the main CBD of Cairns. If you're looking for quality accommodation at a reasonable price, it would be hard to go past Koala Court. Highly recommended! Make sure you also have a meal at the Cock and... More

We stayed here for a week in one of the two bedroom apartments. Apartments are very large and have all the facilities one would want - very family friendly. Our only critcism was the beds were very uncomfortable and the air conditioners loud in the lounge and bedrooms. Andy was very helpful when it came to booking our tours. We... More

We were granted an early check-in by Andy and he helped take our luggage up to our room. We were very impressed by the spaciousness and great layout of the apartment. Also were given some recommendations for meals. Our only problem with Koala Court was the distance away from 'downtown' Cairns - where the action is! We were up for... More

We stayed here for 4 nights during our stay in Cairns. The apartment was well equipped clean and very comfortable. The bed linen was lovely. The owners were lovely and gave us useful information on the area. We booked an excursion through them which was excellent. There are amenities close by. The walk to the centre takes about 40 mins,... More
