    Rental Home –

    Why settle for an apartment when you can rent your own spacious and comfortable family home close to the City Centre? Wilks House is a timber Queenslander home of great character with 4 bedrooms (2 Queen beds, and 2 sets of Twin Single beds) 2 modern bathrooms with showers and a bath, a large family room and children's rumpus room, and a very well equipped kitchen for those who like to cook.

    Additional Location Information
    Wilks House is located in a quiet no through road, just 5 - 6 minutes by car from the city centre with views to the wooded hills from the front porch.. It is within walking distance of Stockland Shopping centre at Earlville, which has 2 major grocery stores and many specialty shops. This shopping centre also has a cinema complex. Restaurants, a doctors/dentist surgery, chemist and liquor store are all close by.
    Public bus transport is frequent along Mulgrave Road, if you do not have a hire car.
    The Esplanade Lagoon swimming pool and children's water park/playground are also easy to get to and a very popular place for locals and tourists to Cairns. Trips to the Great Barrier Reef leave from the reef fleet terminal in town. Skyrail gives you a birds eye view of Cairns as you skim across the top of the rainforest in small cable cars and you have the option of returning by the Kuranda Train. For those who like to explore the area in their own car, we have a list of 'off the b...

A big thank you to Nick & Lizzie for providing such wonderful hospitality on such short notice. The place was immaculate and could have easily catered for a family of 6. Close to the bus and not far from the city by car. It felt like a home away from home. Thank you. more
