"Quality suburb close to city"

Whitfield does not have many units .The Legoland area is really part of Manoora. Whitfield is Characterised by lage Quality houses on hillslopes and shady parks.Neighbours are friendly enough and not intrusive.

"Too many units and rental problems"

Whitfield or as it was nick named years ago "Lego Land" is full of units and town houses...great for affordability but not a great place to live...a bit like the block....very noisey with people living on top of each other....like living in a big city not like a tropical paradise.....

"Home With A View"

Whitfield has a diverse range of homes and the higher you go up the hill slopes the more they are worth!

This suburb is arguably the prestige suburb of Cairns with close access to the city and yet not a major thoroughfare. Ideal for all types of homeowners and owner occupiers prevail.

"Great Leafy Suburb !!!!!!!!"

Whitfield is the upper end of the Cairns suburbs which is renouned to be a classy and leafy suburb offering plenty of parks and great cafe's. Ideal I think for growing familys, young professionals and the mature end of residence.
