"Played out"

Was a good suburb. Too much development now. Stick with Kewarra Beach instead. Also stay away from Lunicos restaurant. Terrible food.

"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 :)

  • Safe and Friendly suburb
  • Heaven on Earth

"Cairns' most popular beach suburb"

Trinity Beach holds a central position on the northern beaches offering short driving distance to local Smithfield Shopping Centre as well as neighbouring beach suburbs. Trinity Beach also has it's own shopping village with small supermarket and approx. 20 other shops including bakery, news-agency, pharmacy, laundromat and other local businesses. Some great restaurants on and close to the beach; there is also a local gym and RSL club. Approx. 20 minute drive to Cairns City and 10 minute drive to Palm Cove; Trinity Beach features a good mix of residential homes, units, townhouses and holiday-style apartment complexes - not to mention great beach!

"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!

damon79 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.

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

damon79
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?..........

"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.

toolman
toolman 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....

damon79 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.

"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
Pros
  • Beachside suburb
  • Ordinary shops and school
Cons
  • Police beat
  • Not many options
  • Public Housing

mytwins
mytwins 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.
