Lived there for around 18 months. Boring as hell. All the houses look the same. Roads were so narrow they fit 1 car going down. Horrible.
Pros
  • Quiet
Cons
  • Little trees, foliage or shade
  • Sterile and boring
  • Beach infested with mozzies
  • Mosquitoes in parks
  • No character

"Lego houses with no character"

All houses look the same and most are of poor quality. Not a part of the Northern beaches which starts at Trinity Beach. Houses so close together you can hear your neighbours sneeze. Beach is riddled with mosquitoes. Poor neighbour spirit. Only thing good is the proximity to shops.
Pros
  • Close proximity to Smithfield Shopping Centre
  • Quiet
  • Boat ramp
Cons
  • Beach infested with mozzies
  • Little trees, foliage or shade
  • Sterile and boring
  • Mosquitoes in parks
  • No character

"Worst suburb up north"

First. Don't confuse Trinity Park with the northern beaches. The beaches start at Trinity Beach onwards.
New houses going up here are extremely poor in design and quality. Expect problems very early post completion.
Has a shop.
The beach is almost unusable. It backs onto a swamp that is swarming with mosquitoes.
New houses are like lego. Compressed together and all look the same.
Only good thing is that it's close to Smithfield where you can go to the tavern and drink as much as possible to try to forget that you live in Trinity Park.
Now has a tavern near Blue Water where I've heard the waterfront houses are sinking. Great starter suburb for newbies to Cairns before they find their feet and realise there is so much better.
Pros
  • Internet
  • Tavern
  • Close proximity to Smithfield Shopping Centre
  • Quiet
Cons
  • Sterile and boring
  • Beach infested with mozzies
  • Little trees, foliage or shade

  • World class marina with deep water access to the great barrier reef.
  • Laid back lifestyle
  • Beautiful secluded beach
  • Close proximity to Smithfield Shopping Centre

deef This review is written by a real estate agent. Not to be taken seriously. Stay clear of the houses packed in like sardines and try an established suburb like Kewarra Beach or Trinity Beach.

"Large public housing communites in Trinity park, Dont waste your time."

Don't your time building your dream home in Trinity Park.

There are considerably large amount of public housing in this area, along on Reed Road and particularly new public housing units are currently building in the Bluewater canal which near Half moon Bay beach and as a result this has pretty much ruined the whole Bluewater estate.

Also, there is a new cheap estate like 'Smithfield Village' where some real estate allows house and land package to be built at S/field village at a record low price, which are fine for investors. Apart from it, there are good schools and major shopping centre nearby.

damon79 I currently reside in Trinity Beach. It's nice, but Trinity Park seems to be a better bang for buck. Is it really filled with public housing? I was looking at buying in this area in 6 to 12 months, however if it has this going on there is no way I will bother. I don't want problem neighbours.

jp2905 damon79: I bought in Smithfield Village 6 months ago and we've been very happy here. All the homes are of good quality, as you say they are affordable, everyone we pass on our afternoon walks are friendly, and the maintanance of the suburb is very well done. Their is a Village community organisation that organises regular events in the local park which is great if you have kids. It is true that their is public housing on Reed road and Bluewater estate but we haven't seen any issues with that in our estate. Unfortunately Cairns will always have public housing throughout most suburbs of the region.

"You'll be amazed by the community resources already available to Smithfield Village residents."

It sounds astonishing, but the fact is that within five minutes of your new home in Smithfield Village , there are already many outstanding facilities.

A substantial community recreation centre.

A 50 metre public swimming pool.

Holy Cross School, Trinity Park , the local primary school, and Smithfield High School.

James Cook University is a casual bike ride across the Highway which also shares the name of Australia's famous discoverer.

And there are local shops within walking distance of the Village.

What's more, the substantial Smithfield Shopping Centre, with K Mart, Woolworths and many excellent specialty stores, is a brief, three-minute drive away.

Why would you not want to live in Smithfield Village
