"Family friendly suburb."

Green and leafy. Easy access to amenities. Supermarkets, parks, sports clubs and schools. Friendly neighbourhood. Easy drive to city for work. Walking tracks everywhere. Houses are generally on nice big blocks with wide streets. On the weekends its an easy drive to anywhere and we have enjoyed exploring the southern part of Cairns just as much as the more popular northern side. Good value for money if buying a home. We really love it here.

"Lacking the character of Cairns"

In the southern suburbs of Cairns. New cheap houses going in. Nothing to do. Near other suburbs with low class demographic so crime flows in. Beaches are the best bet. Cheap and nasty in Bentley.
Pros
  • Close to city
Cons
  • Crime
  • Boring
  • Cheap housing
