About Edmonton:

Edmonton, an outer southern suburb of Cairns, is on the Bruce Highway 10 km from the city centre. Cairns, considered the gateway to Australia's Great Barrier Reef, is a city in tropical Far North Queensland. You’ll find everything you need within a short drive in Cairns – supermarkets, shops, services, a choice of schools, walking tracks, dog parks, somewhere to swim, sporting facilities, a pub and restaurants. Most likely, you’ll even be close to an art gallery, a boat ramp, beach and a venue to catch live music. You will find that even though we are a relatively small city, we have a lot of lifestyles to choose from - beach, rainforest, city fringe, inner-city, semi-rural and suburban - all of them with a tropical edge.
