We'd love to welcome you to our part of the world in tropical North Queensland, Australia. We live in a quiet close in lovely Freshwater, a leafy suburb of Cairns just 15 mins drive away. Cairns is on the east coast of Queensland and the jewell of the magnificent Barrier Reef. It's also the gateway to the oldest tropical rainforest on earth and the only place on the planet where World Heritage-listed Daintree rainforest meets the Great Barrier Reef.
Pristine air, clean water and the friendliest people live here.

On the Tablelands 60mins away, serene waterfalls, towering trees and crater lakes contrast against a tapestry of farms along self-drive trails to timeless villages.
