Ella Bay — 90 minutes south of Cairns
Ella Bay is located only 88km south of Cairns International airport; the gateway to Tropical North Queensland for more than 3 million domestic and international tourists annually.
Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef is the fastest growing Australian destination for tourism being only 7 to 8 hours by direct flight from the major hubs in Asia: Hong Kong, Osaka, Tokyo, and Singapore and 3 hours from Auckland and Fiji.
South of Cairns the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area runs along the coast from Cairns to Innisfail and Ella Bay is an island of freehold land within this Wet Tropics World Heritage Area.
The closest town to Ella Bay is Innisfail, located on the Johnstone River 4km inland from the coast. Traditionally an agricultural and fishing area, Innisfail is now focussed on becoming an effective transport hub with port, rail, highway and air facilities. The port of Innisfail will be the departure point for tourism to the Great Barrier Reef with many coral reefs only 30km offshore.
This is a spectacular part of Queensland, where rainforest meets one of the great natural wonders of the world – the Great Barrier Reef; and flora, fauna and marine reef ecosystems abound. The unique setting and proximity to World Heritage Areas enhance the eco-resort experience.
The site enjoys extensive beach frontage of 3 km to the Coral Sea. The site rises gently to the west where it shares a common boundary with the Ella Bay National Park, which also borders the property to the north and south, extending the beach access to 9km. The Ella Bay National Park is included in the Wet Tropics World Heritage area.
