Grand Barron Lodge
Cairns is considered the gateway to Australia's Great Barrier Reef and its located in the tropical North Queensland.
Nestled on the banks of the Barron River, this 550m2 under roof, multi-leveled home will take your breath away.
The Grand Barron Lodge offers a rare combination of architectural luxury, magnificent panoramic views and secluded riverfront living while being close to the Great Barrier Reef and Daintree rainforest.
The property is accessed from Cadagi Drive and passes an elegant columned gate. The cadagi forest of the Barron River riparian zone creates a magnificent corridor for the hand-laid brick driveway and helicopter pad towards the house and river beyond.
This quietly isolated stretch of the famed Barron River is as private as waterfront gets. The lodge is designed for entertaining, sophisticated living and family gatherings with an unforgettable riverfront experience. This private estate directly on the Barron River is located just outside of Kuranda and less than 40 minutes to the Cairns international airport.
The home has a chefs kitchen, large living, dining and verandah areas to accentuate the panoramic views. It has four bedrooms with King and Queen beds, each impeccably decorated by owner, international artist Steve Royster.
