This apartment is in a brilliant position overlooking the beach. The apartment was spotless and very well equipped. There is a balcony on the back and front of the apartment and from these we watched kangaroos feeding, this was the only place in Australia we saw them in the 'wild'. Karen, the manager, is very knowledgeable about the area and...

We loved Argosy on the Beach and would highly recommend it. It's right across the road from a great beach. You can walk 15 minutes to some awesome restaurants, but then come back to this sweet, quiet location. It is also only a few minutes to a convenient grocery store and liquor store, and car rental location. The bus line...

Clifton Beach is a great place for a quieter holiday. Very good for beach walks and reasonably close to other Cairns attractions. Argosy units are spacious, well equipped and comfortable. Close to a shopping centre with supermarket, butcher, etc plus a few eateries. Managers very friendly, knowledgeable about the area and helpful.

We chose to stay here to be near the Great Barrier Reef instead of in the big city of Cairns...soooo glad we did. The beach was quiet and gorgeous and all we had to do was walk across the street.
