Australia, Queensland, Cairns Colonial Club Resort

By Johan Boshoff

Queensland, Australia – a paradise in the middle of a rain forest.


Queensland, Australia is an ideal stop over or a perfect destination for a holiday if you want to experience Cairns or the Great Barrier Reef. The Cairns Colonial Club Resort is set within 11 acres (4,5 hectares) of tropical gardens, with three lagoon swimming pools and three resort restaurants. Combining the tranquility of a tropical resort with the advantages of a mainstream hotel, the resort is one of the most popular resorts in tropical North Queensland.

From the moment that its friendly staff met me at the airport I knew that this place took the value of tourism to heart. Gracious and professional, they put me right into the holiday spirit to enjoy the tropical atmosphere and surroundings and the vast range of facilities.
The resort includes 345 comfortable and spacious rooms and suites, offering guests an excellent range of holiday accommodation to choose from. These range from simple and functional Standard Rooms, to spacious and newly refurbished VIP Suites. All the rooms open up straight onto tropical gardens and have air conditioning, ceiling fans, television, refrigerator, telephones, local/STD/ISD and tea/coffee facilities.
Guests will especially enjoy the relaxed and informal atmosphere created by the tropical surrounds, and no doubt the resort staff who are the main contributors to a wonderful and happy holiday at the resort.

Free airport transfers are available for all flights and arrivals, and the resort also offers a convenient shuttle service to and from the Cairns City Centre (which is just five minutes away), every hour throughout the day.
