A modern poolside home on the 3 acre Red Arrow hillside property overlooking Trinity Bay is now available by itself for periods outside of school holidays.

Ideal for a small family or 2 couples who want to be close to the city but in a world of their own. The Lodge will not be booked at the same time as the Pool House unless it is the same group.

The Pool House is near the airport and you will hear aircraft taking off which does bother some guests while others say they find it exciting to see the aircraft coming and going.

Edge Hill and Cairns Botanical Gardens

The city is just a short taxi drive away (5 minutes) and restaurants and cafes are within walking distance (15 minutes) around the five ways junction at Edge Hill village. The walk along Collins Avenue passes right through the Flecker Botanical Gardens. There are 2 good cafes in the gardens - one at the mirror building just past The Tanks and the other in the main garden (on the right) a little further along Collins Avenue.  Be sure to check out what is on at The Tanks Arts Centre - it is the most amazing and intimate music venue as well as a gallery exhibition space. The well known Red Arrow track runs right past the lodge - it's a great way to start the morning with a hike up to the lookout from where you can see over Trinity Bay and watch the planes landing and taking off at the Cairns airport. The start of the track is on the right before you get to The Tanks. Explore the park and gardens on the left side of Collins Avenue too. You can walk right through to Greenslopes Street where there is a new kids playground beside Centenary Lake. Another route to take is the boardwalk through the palm and pandanus swamp. The boardwalk starts opposite the main gate of the Botanical Garden. The village of Edge Hill is just past the gardens. Edhe Hill is an old suburb but is very popular with a younger crowd who enjoy the many good cafes and restaurants along Collins Avenue.

Cairns Esplanade, The Lagoon and the city

It would be hard to find a better location in Cairns. If you want to wine and dine in town without worrying about drink-drive laws, a taxi will cost less than $15. There is a greater choice of restaurants than on the northern beaches, as well as The Casino, the Cairns Aquarium and other entertainments.

The Esplanade is the key natural feature of the city. It is not a beach but a mudflat which attracts migratory wading birds by the thousands and looks out to the untouched  mountain landscape on the other side of Trinity Bay. From The Pool House it is less than 1km to the northern end of the esplanade. From here it is a 35 minute walk to The Lagoon. A great walk to do in the early morning with the sun rising and turning Trinity Bay golden.People are out walking their dogs or jogging and the air is still cool. Join one of the Yoga or Pilates classes near the lagoon.At the southern end you can get a great breakfast at Villa Romana.

The evenings along The Esplanade are busier because most of the city's restaurants are concentrated  between Shield St and Florence St. Around the lagoon and along the esplanade there are tables and BBQs. Get there early to bag a BBQ because eating outdoors is part of the way of life in North Queensland. You can swim in the lagoon up to 9pm.

Pst the lagoon, the path takes you past the Helipad to the northern finger wharf and The Salt House, a popular bar and restaurant. It's worth walking to the end of the wharf - there is often an amazing super yacht tied up on the outside of the marina. The view back across the bay to the main esplanade and the hotels along the front is spectacular in the evening light. If you go to the right of The Salt House the boardwalk runs along the marina with restaurants on the right in the Pier Building and further on under the Harbour Lights building. At the end of the boardwalk is the best waterside beer garden in Cairns - Mondos. Best because it is closest to the water and the lovely old red flowering Poinciana tree in the centre of the courtyard. Its a great place to watch the sun go down and the flying foxes silhouetted against the sky as they cross the inlet on the nightly forage run.

The Pool House offers a unique, private world of rainforest and magnificent tall trees overlooking Trinity Bay just 5 minutes by car from the shops and buzz of the city.
