Cairns Colonial Club Resort

Tropical Resort

Long before Cairns was considered a bucket-list destination, local developer and visionary Ian Thomas executed his concept to create a unique tourist haven reflecting colonial-style architecture in a tropical setting.

Built in 1985, the Cairns Colonial Club Resort originally comprised of 151 rooms on 11 acres of rainforest gardens and immediately created a buzz with locals, travel agents and international tourists alike. The resort was such a resounding success that 129 new rooms were quickly built. This was followed in 1992 with the addition of 65 new Superior rooms surrounding the popular Club Pool that sported one of the region's first swim-up bars.

Today, the resort is owned by Singaporean-based Goodearth Hotels and boats 345 accommodation rooms, 3 lagoon-style pools and fully-service restaurant, poolside bar & cafe and extensive conference and function facilities.

Award Winning Gardens

The original resort was built around a tract of ancient rainforest. This is a very unique concept that allows guests to really experience the natural wonders on 11 acres (4.5 hectares) of tropical, award-winning landscaped gardens up close.

The bright yellow butterfly adorning the tropical logo was widely recognised around the globe and the Cairns Colonial Club name quickly became known worldwide as the regions leading leisure resort.
