Wilks House

A traditional low set timber Queenslander home in Cairns has polished wooden floors and high ceilings, built for our tropical climate. Wilks House has 4 bedrooms (all air conditioned) 2 bathrooms and 2 living areas, providing plenty of room for a large family group or friends who want to stay together. Wifi Broadband internet and Austar Satellite TV are provided for FREE. The kitchen is very well equipped to make catering for your family easy and enjoyable. This home has a large well kept garden which is fully fenced. Earlville Shopping Centre is only a 5 minute drive for groceries, specialty shops and the cinema complex. There are several restaurants and a bottle shop within walking distance of the house. The city centre is 3km which is a short taxi ride if you want to go out and enjoy the clubs and casino at night time. The Esplanade Lagoon is a wonderful free swimming pool right on the shorefront and with lifeguards on duty this makes it a very safe place for children to splash about and have fun. Part of the Cairns Holiday Homes family of Holiday Rentals. Owner managed.

Australia, Queensland, Cairns

    Cairns is well known as The Gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, but it is also surrounded by World Heritage listed Rainforest. This makes it the ideal place for an adventure packed holiday....or a winter sun retreat with beautiful beaches for lazy days spent under the shade of the palm trees with a good book! Scuba diving and snorkeling trips to the GBR leave daily from Marlin Marina which is around 4 km from the house. The Esplanade has a long boardwalk which is very popular with anyone who likes to birdwatch, jog, walk the dog or visit the local markets on the weekends. Cairns Botanical Gardens at Edge Hill is definitely on the top ten list of things to do while you are here...a small but beautifully kept garden featuring many of our tropical plants which are well named with information tags and a cafe/restaurant for those who want to linger there for a while to enjoy their surroundings. Skyrail is also on that list. Take the gondolas from Smithfield and soar high above the rainforest with tremendous views out to sea over the bay. 2 platform stops to let you get out and enjoy the smells and sights of the rainforest. Drive one of the most beautiful coast roads from Cairns to Port Douglas with many stop off points for great photos. There are plenty of things to do which will keep all ages happy and occupied for at least a week!
