This house is an absolute stunner. From the moment we walked in, our group felt at home and at ease. Looking out into the treetops from the deck was just gorgeous. We especially loved the beautiful butterflies and at night the noises from the rainforest were superb.The location is an easy ten minutes from the airport or fifteen from the centre of Cairns. The location also meant Port Douglas and Palm Cove were close too, so exploring all three towns was easy.Thank you to the owners for maintaining a beautiful property. We had no complaints whatsoever; this was simply the perfect stay. Serena F.


Wanggulay is located just 15 minutes drive from the tropical city of Cairns and the International Airport. Wanggulay is hidden at the end of a quiet street overlooking the tropical rainforest below. Cairns has a pleasant ‘summery’ temperature all year round and is a perfect base for day trips to the Great Barrier Reef, the Daintree Rainforest and the Atherton Tablelands.
