Acquarius is located in a splendid position on the Esplanade, Cairns, within comfortable walking distance to dining and entertainment venues which include the RSL, the Casino and a good range of 4 star restaurants...

Our family stayed at Cairns Aquarius for 5 days. Apartment was spacious, well equipped and well maintained. Location is perfect, and central. Close to all attractions. View is wonderful. Troy and Elizabeth were awesome. Troy even dropped us off at the airport. Our family enjoyed the stay and was very relaxing. Highly recommend for families with little kids.

Aquarius must be the best place to stay in Cairns. Right on the Esplanade, it is a short walk from hundreds of bars cafes and restaurants, the lagoon pool and the boats to the reef. We stayed in number 67 and we think this might be the best one in Aquarius. The apartment is renovated to the absolute highest standard... More

My family and I stayed here for 10 days and it was perfect. Lovely view from the apartment of the bay, very clean and extremely well furnished. Troy and Elizabeth were exceedingly helpful and thoughtful, even giving our daughter some flowers on her 18th birthday. Great for getting into town to the shops and close for the marina to go...
