"Far away from everything going and rains all the time"

Nothing to go. It rains all the time because they are so lose to the mountains. Feels so far away from everything. Traffic issues. Over priced for what it is.
Pros
  • Clean
Cons
  • Far away
  • Rains all the time
  • No character

"Australia's Uganda!"

Breathtaking! Absolutely stunning scenery and what city has such magnificent mountains with in 15 mins drive here in Australia! I would travel an hour to Springbrook National park or Mt Tambourine whilst living on the Gold Coast and The Blue Mountains from Sydney are an hour.Their is a lot of positive to be said for Cairns with areas such as Redlynch being apart of it! My partner and I are relocating their from a very brown Townsville! can not wait! plenty of running paths for me and creeks for my partner water holes views and yet so close to the city with very little traffic (once you have lived in Perth,Sydney,the Gold Coast and Brisbane this city is a breath of fresh air! when it comes to traffic.Outdoor 50 metre pool 10 minutes away! Woolworths and shops close by,the smell of clean air.A very special find indeed.

"Redlynch Valley - Should Be Heritage Listed!"

The suburb of Redlynch incorporating Redlynch Valley is arguably the best area to be a kid! With the constantly flowing Freshwater Creek providing canoeing adventures, Crystal Cascades for waterfalls and rockpools for swimming it is a haven for those who enjoy the outdoors.

Plenty of challenging bushwalking tracks await the brave and secret swimming holes only known by locals are bonus attractions but I'm not going to tell you where!

As a local living real estate agent I may be biased :) but this is million dollar property down the Valley - without that price tag. If you want to live somewhere with the family and be in an active community and still live in Cairns but not FEEL like you live in Cairns then check the Valley out!

"But it's a long drive to get there....." It just gives you more time to appreciate the rural aspect still prevailing down the Valley so when you get home all the stress is blown away.

And when the sun goes down over the mountain...... "Dragon Mountain" as my daughter calls it.... the locals come out and have a beer with their neighbours in the street........ kids will ride their bikes or scooters in the street and you know that they are safe.......... the sound of a mower or two reverberates along the street and the Valley breeze kicks in under the shadow of the mountain.... and you accidentally leave the garage door up all night but no-one has stolen anything.............

Ah yes, there is nowhere else in FNQ I'd rather be...........!
