Recreation and Activities
Freshwater’s central location makes it close to a large variety of activities. Head across the highway and all the beach suburbs are at your fingertips. In nearby Edge Hill, you will find the Cairns Botanical Gardens, which is an inspiration to all garden lovers. Head up the mountain to Kuranda and enjoy all the Atherton Tablelands has to offer. Or for a more adventurous day, Crystal Cascades can be reached by a short hike. Natural swimming pools can be enjoyed, especially in the hot humid weather of Cairns. For sporting enthusiasts, Paradise Palms is not only a great golf course, but has facilities to entertain the entire family, with a giant jumping pillow, putt putt and large adventure playgrounds.
