"Another run down suburb like the rest of Cairns"

This suburb is no different than the rest of Cairns. It is just as run down as the others. The neighbours are unfriendly. The water has a stench because Cairns Council rinses the bins every day at the beach and if you go into the water you'll come out smelling like a bin. There is nothing that stands out. Same streets, old looking houses, overpriced restaurants, undercover vans with speed cameras, small shopping strip and the nearest shopping centre (Smithfield) is like a ghost town. And just like the rest of Cairns it is just too hot. Nine months of the year in air con rooms or else your eyesight will deteriorate and you'll get skin damage/cancer. Most people here are just old and so there is a lot of employment in medical welfare and the elderly paid by the government. Another common job is a teacher. It is almost this place is buzzing with kids of all sorts of ages. Maybe because there is nothing else to do. Plus Carins Council is more or less a police council just issuing fines and warnings. In the dry season, the place is completely dry (which is 9 months of the year). When Christmas comes, then the rain comes with it. But it will come in a two week burst then it will stop. It is not a tropical place as most days it reaches 37 degrees. The weather bureau lies about the real temperature to encourage people to live here. Trust me I was fooled by all the lies and deception. If you plan to buy a house, they are all flawed. Expect to pay through the roof for renovation and repairs. And if you think you'll save money by doing it yourself, you are wrong again. Materials here cost almost double. Finally when you want to sell the darn property you will only get back what you put into it or even a loss. Warning to all people who want to move to Cairns - dont do it. I lost lots of money buying into Cairns. Everywhere else the property market has boomed. Here it's dead and it will stay dead for a long time.

"Friendliest community on the Beaches"

Trinity Beach is one of the favoured Cairns beaches amongst locals. Trinity Beach is just as beautiful as the other northern beaches that line the Cairns Coral Coast but with a more down-to earth and laid back casual atmosphere amongst classy surrounds.

The majority of people at Trinity Beach are locals that reside in the beach suburb at the back of the beachfront esplanade. The beachfront has seen lots of self contained holiday apartments and resorts being developed over the past decade and there are several high end luxury accommodation apartments that now line this beautiful beach.

"Used to be a lovely spot"

Trinity beach has been ruined by developers accommodating retired Boomers. The local mob of wild wallabies have lost their once pretty suburb and the area now looks like something out of that movie, Cocoon. Vulgar and aesthetically bland.

"Nice but crowded and overvalued"

Nice suburb but gets the tourist influxes and a little overpriced. Crap restaurants. Saw Lunico restaurants staff member drop a pizza on a customer, then the customer ordered another one and the staff member asked why? Lol.

"HEAVEN on EARTH - Trinity Beach :)"

Trinity Beach is such an amazing place... We fell in love with it almost immediately and decided that we had to spend some time and live there :) I can't explain what a nice feeling it is to see the beautiful beach and enjoy the friendliness of the locals and the calm/tranquil feel of the area. There are shops near by, a bar for a bit of night life (however if you want a huge nightlife scene then don't stay in Trinity Beach - stay in Cairns)

The water is amazing, the people are so friendly, and you feel safe at any time of the day or night. BY FAR - the best part of the Cairns area :)

"Land"

I have purchased a plot of land in the Bluewater estate in Trinity beach and cannot wait until i build. The area will be a boom one soon, like Palm Cove, which is near Trinity, but with a higher price tag! The area is clean and with a multi million dollar marina next to it...well what more can i say!

This person bought land in the wrong suburb, perhaps we should break the new to them??? You are talking about Trinity Park. Wrong suburb profile buddy.
Can people that post here please do a little research before they do.

I have done lots of research and it is Trinity Beach, not park dude....can you READ! BLUEWATER..... not back water!!!

damon79

I presume you did your research. Just not enough. E.g. If you had then you wouldn't have invested in an area that has an abundance of public housing. You sound like your are from Sydbey or Melbourne. Insert unnecessary CAPITAL LETTERS and exclamation marks!!!

atomguy
atomguy

Mmm interesting comment, seems the builders and property experts are all wrong then matey! Sometimes you need to use capital letters .......if someone did not read the first statement! There is public housing nearby, but if a multi million property company is going to invest in the area then i feel they have done the research.....dont you? It is interesting that you are a new member and you seem to be an expert in the area...........where do you recommend then?..........

"Trinity Beach - live or rent"

Not my cup of tea.
Police beat
Noise on the esplanade
Old shops with no competition, not much to offer really
An old beachside suburb in need of a kickstart

My family have lived in TB for 16 years. The kids have been well educated and the environment is fantastic. The beach is the best in Cairns and the local shops and restaurants are very good. There will always be a disgruntled few who will have a whinge but most people would love living here. Perhaps the negative comment about Police Beat goes a long way to indicate the quality of the person who made the above comment. I see them as a major advantage to the safety and security of the neighbourhood.

"Trinity Beach - The Beachside Community"

I moved to Trinity Beach 3 years ago and absolutely loved it. I first lived in a rental townhouse for six months to see how it was, and loved it so much that I bought a house with my wife to start our family. It is a part of Cairns without all of the tourism hype, and full of genuine locals who say g'day and have a chat with you whenever you may meet. It has the best beach in Cairns, and the tourists it does have are just as happy to relax and mingle with the locals without any problem. All restraunteurs in the area are friendly and value the local business, and there is no need for a car once you are here as you can walk everywhere. Which other non-touristy beachside community has 7 different cafe's / restaurants, a pub and bottleshop right on the beach, IGA and primary school, kindergaten? I may be biased now but I love it, because it reminds me of the relaxed community that I grew up in and now want to raise my kids in.

"Why would you live here?"

It's hot, stuffy and muggy, a very wet damp feel to the air. Little to do other than bungee jump and go shopping at Smithfield. The streets don't have a 'safe' feel to them and without being judgemental there are some very dubious characters that frequent the streets of Trinity Beach. Every town has some bad characters but these seem to be in a league of their own. Hooning is the local sport of choice. Motorbikes are seemingly allowed on the footpaths as to police this would be too much of a task in itself. Roundabouts are negotiated by the locals by going flat out at a hundred and screaming across them blindly hoping to avoid other road users! As for shopping, it just seems to be littered with Macca's and Bottle Shops with what looks like the biggest Dan Murphy's in Queensland! When we were there we saw a lot of drinking on the streets and even locals sipping burben from cairns in traffic!!! Although it is nice to see the treetops and mountains around you this in itself is not enough to make you want to live in this area for any amount of time. It also feels too far north to be taken seriously in the business arena, anyone setting up here would no doubt struggle unless they wish to work at the local bottlo or Macca's for the rest of their life. The beaches were nice although there is a large populus of Jellyfish (or was whilst we were there) Not a lot for local families to do. Any young people approaching School leaving age would indoubtedly find it a struggle to gain decent employment that would lead to an established career. Real Estate is easy to find, still overpriced considering the facilities of the area, rentals are reasonably priced but there's a lot of run down properties so beware if sourcing a rental.

Hey Mate, I think you are talking about Smithfield. There ain't no Macca's in Trinity Beach and only 2 bottleshops (trinity beach pub and Liquorland). Sorry about the accomodation but you get what you pay for. Friends of mine stayed in Moore street and the suites were fantastic !!!!!! Nah you got it all wrong, Trinity Beach is just great, people are friendly and very rarely see a motor bike around. As for hoons the police have that controlled on Trinity Beach Road...Book them all the time. Hope to see you soon....

It's a nice area, great atmosphere. Never seen any dubious characters, hoons etc. I think that this person is confused about Trinity Beach and Smithfield, which is a couple of suburbs away (and sounds very much like what they are describing). I presume they get a map and learn about the area. It sounds like they have never been to Trinity Beach at all. :(
Oh my, it's a worry.
