Cairns is a modern, vibrant city with facilities to match any national capital. Moreover we are young and casual, and we have a ‘shirtsleeve, swim anytime’ climate that could drive most other Australian cities insane with jealousy. We thought it would be interesting to share visitor demographics, and why they rate Cairns best holiday accommodation in North Queensland. Because these visitors’ expectations compare well with our Wanggulay holiday rentals.
We have two Bali-style holiday units both easily accommodating 12 people each. Plus a few extra spaces for kids to nap on couches, or on decks under star-studded moonlight. Our holiday homes are on the western inland city edge, where a heritage rain forest prevents further urban creep. When we walk to the bottom of the garden we enter nature at its best, with streams and waterfalls a few dozen footsteps away. We would love to share all this with you. Moreover we assure you utmost privacy.
