The SpaceThe Lodge & Pool House is a modern 8 bedroom Holiday Home on a 3 acre hillside site which was part of an historic property known as Arcadia. The Lodge sleeps 8 guests and shares a beautiful swimming pool with a 3 bedroom luxury Pool House that sleeps 5. The lodge has everything you could need for a fabulous holiday - even a baby grand piano and a Table Tennis table.
Collins Avenue, which passes through the middle of the Botanical Gardens is the most beautiful street to drive or walk in Cairns. Take an early morning walk along Collins for breakfast at the Botanical gardens restaurant. Giant Raintrees draped with ferns , lush beds of ginger and gorgeous geometrical fan palms decorate the footpath. Colourful Brush-Turkeys often cross the road or you may hear the strange haunting call of the Orange-footed Scrub Fowl.
On the way, you pass the Tanks Arts Centre which has an exciting mix of concerts , theatre and art exhibitions. The morning market at the Tanks on the last Sunday of the month (April-November) is lots of fun too.

The NeighborhoodCollins Avenue has to be one of the nicest streetscapes in Cairns .... in our opinion! Large trees festooned with ferns, luxuriant undergrowth, the botanic gardens, and leads into Edge Hill Village. Our favourite cafes are Ozmosis and the Wild Bean Cafe at the Visitors Centre. 'Linga Longa' Restaurant is recommended for dinner. Getting AroundParking at the Lodge is limited to 3 cars in a 3 bay carport. Other Things to NoteWedding, events and other parties/functions are not allowed at this home as it causes too much noise and disruption for neighbours who are quite close by on the hillside.
