Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

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 with an International Airport. 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.

Cairns is the tourist hub of North Queensland which boasts lovely beaches north and south along the coast. Our favourites are Trinity Beach and Palm Cove just 20 minutes from our home.

What an adventure awaits you. Beautiful beaches, beach front dining, warm balmy days under palm trees in paradise. Great walks, hiking or cycling within minutes of our home. Many cosmopolitan restaurants and bars to chose from in the area.

Our coral sea provides sailing, swimming, snorkelling, scuba diving, fishing, jet skiing, day trips to the reef. Or seek out one of our many cool freshwater swimming holes for a picnic.

Or trek west into vast savannah landscape where spectacular gorges, ancient lava tubes and the history of Australian pioneers await discovery. Uncover these hidden gems in the rugged lands of the Gulf Savannah. Australian pioneering history, Aboriginal culture.

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.

90 minutes South to the Mission Beach area you discover unspoilt tropical paradise of World Heritage-listed rainforest, sandy beaches and departure point to Islands.

If you'd love to experience paradise first hand, you must come visit.

Our home -
Our comfortable home is contemporary style built for the tropics, open plan living areas, airy to let the cool breezes in. You'll find our love of Art on our walls.

Three bedrooms and two bathrooms. We have wireless internet.
