Cairns Colonial Club Resort 4 stars

Hotel in Cairns

Cairns Colonial Club Resort has affordable accommodation, 10 minutes’ drive from the city centre and Cairns Airport. It features 3 lagoon-style pools, and a man-made beach. We slept one night only and did not see much of this resort, only the lobby and entrance area while checking in and out - which was beautiful. I am sorry we missed out on this special resort. Our stay was to short!!
