Lovely, quiet and spacious room. Nice and cool to relax on the veranda. The house has real character in a peaceful setting. Hosts were helpful and friendly. Breakfast was enjoyable and great time to chat to other guests. We will definitely be returning.

How far is Lilybank B&B from Cairns marina? We won't have a car and plan to visit Fitzroy Island?
Hello Lilybank is 7kms from Marina. Some boats pick you up from Lilybank. We can take you there if we are not too busy. You will have to catch a bus or taxi back to Lilybank in the afternoon. There is also a bus stop out front that leaves on the 1/2 hour if you are catching a late boat eg 8 or 9 am. A taxi from Lilybank to Marina will costs approx. $25. Kind regards Linda
