    About this area


    Located in Stratford, Lilybank Guest House is in an area with good shopping. Reef Fleet Terminal and Cairns Marlin Marina are worth checking out if an activity is on the agenda, while those in the mood for shopping can visit Cairns Central Shopping Centre and Cairns Night Markets. Skyrail Rainforest Cableway and Esplanade Lagoon are not to be missed. Our guests appreciate the bed & breakfast's quiet location.

      A convenient location to stay while in Cairns

      LilyBank Guest House is conveniently located less than 10 minutes from Cairns Airport, 15 minutes to the beaches and Cairns Esplanade, and right down the street from Freshwater Train Station. If driving, directions in the area are easily found by following the signs. Our stay at LilyBank was good, no frills. The full breakfast is really a continental breakfast but good just the same. The property is nice and our shower was awesome but unfortunately the bed was old and uncomfortable. Owner Jeanette made us feel welcome and took good care of us.

      4/5 Good

      George and Katherine were exceptionally helpful and always available to answer questions and solve any issues. The pools were great as was the BBQ area. The location relative to downtown, the beach and restaurants was all I needed. George was a wealth of knowledge about regional and local activities and provided discounts for many. The location on two moderately heavily trafficked streets, especially during garbage pickup, is a bit noisy but passes quickly, returning to the songs of local birds.
