After staying with Gus's brother Gavin and his lovely wife Marie in Thornlands near Brisbane, we took "The Sunlander Train" to Cairns.

The apartments here are very nice. Facilities include a nice pool and BBQ's and lovely maintained gardens. Although a little out of the main city centre (approx) 14klms, it suited out needs and we were able to negotiate the public transport by bus into town almost daily. It was easy although a little expensive
It's also very quiet at the resort and good for families.
