Paris881 - Sydney, Australia - Stayed April 2018 Loved it here This was our first hotel stay in Australia travelling on later to Melbourne, Sydney then on to New Zealand. I have to admit I enjoyed my 3 night stay here best of all.
The hotel is a type of motel, the reception staff were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. My room was on the first floor and I had a veranda that was on the front and I could sit and just watch the world go by. Nice outdoor pool. Breakfast and evening meal again very good, sat outside under a semi covered area. The only draw back and the reason for not giving 5 stars was that there was not a safe deposit box in the bedroom, but one was available at reception to use.
Cairns was lovely - small walk to few shops. All staff great. Thank you. Would stay here again if ever fortunate enough to be in this area. Not overly posh but a very pleasant experience. Linda B - Uk - Stayed March 2018 'Large Comfortable Rooms' We stayed one night at the beginning of a tour and one night at the end.
The first room was at the front and the last at the rear. Both rooms were identical but one had a view of the pool and street while the other was of neighbouring apartments. The rooms were large with a king and a single bed, quiet, clean and well presented. The location is at the far end of the Esplanade and a long walk to the town centre and all the attractions which could be unpleasant in the steamy North Queensland summer. It's not a luxury hotel, but we enjoyed our stay.
GregSelf - Brisbane, Australia - Stayed May 2017 'Loved it, Highly Recommend' Stayed here for 10 nights in April. It was absolutely lovely and the staff were amazing. Room was spacious and clean, beds were comfy, air con was a god send, bathroom was clean, shower was AMAZING, free wifi.
Location was about 20 min walk from the Lagoon on the Esplanade and the city where the shops are (with people saying it took them longer, they obviously walked very slowly?!) On just reading some of the other reviews I cant help but think people are being very picky. We never had any problems with our room but if something were to have come up I have confidence that it wouldn't have been a problem as the staff at this hotel go above and beyond for the guests.
We ate a few times downstairs and the food was fantastic. For anyone who is looking at booking this hotel but is put off by reading some of the other reviews, I think the people who are speaking bad of this hotel spent too much time in it and should of got out a bit more and explored Cairns. No hotel is perfect but I'd say this is pretty close. Highly recommend to any age. We are ages 19-24. Jasmine295 - Warrington UK - Stayed April 2017

The start of the brought rugby union to a halt in Queensland after 1914. The was re-established in 1928–29 but the game languished in country regions for many years.

The Heelers name was adopted in 2000 for the start of the competition, which Queensland Country won in the inaugural season, defeating Perth on full-time in a semi-final in Perth, and coming from 16–17 down against NSW Country to score in the final minutes to win the final at Sydney Stadium by 23-17.
