I had an apartment here for 8 months while I was based in Townsville. Being on the 6th floor was painful with only one elevator (to carry groceries & dive gear) however there were staircases. It took me sometime to get accustomed to apartment living as I found it noisy. I had a secure single bay car space in the basement. Unfortunately I never used the pool or bbq facilities. The complex is overlookling the Ross Creek & across from the 2 main eating& entertainment streets (Palmer & Flinders). My rooms had a single bedroom with ensuite. I had a washer/dryer recess & the kitchen/dining/lounge was well equipped. The best thing was the view & I would often drag the lounge onto the patio to watch the sunset. There is a post shop/chemist/Coles supermarket in the small arcade across the road. And a doctors surgery a short walk away. Furthermore, the main 'shopping street' of the town centre is one block away. Suburban shopping complexes are a 10-15min drive away. I am not sure of cost/value for money as work paid.
