Ibis Styles Cairns Colonial Club Resort (formally Righa Colonial Club Resort) – we stayed in this fabulous eco hotel set in 12 acres of lush tropical gardens, and loved their buffet breakfasts in the Homestead Restaurant. It was a great base to see the Great Barrier Reef, close access to town, and also visiting Kuranda Rainforest.
