Bessacarr Grange

2 sites · RVs5 acres · Cairns, QLD
I purchased this land at the end of last century. I lived in a caravan myself for 2 years while I owner built my home. At the time I was full time "flying" for Ansett and fitted the work in by late starts and week-ends away. I designed everything and had many items purpose made in Indonesia, including statues for the garden. It is the gardens themselves that take up my time, landscaping for me means a bobcat or excavator. I am currently subdividing the lower area into two one acre lots, so periodically, max 2 hours week these will arrive and provide some entertainment usually 3.30 to 6pm. Occasionally I will have materials dropped off, such as mulch or rocks, but this should not bother anyone staying on site, naturally I would ask you to move before I dumped a load where you are camping.... just joking ! It is a form of creation and if you spot the odd pile of large rocks in a picture this is the reason. I propagate most plants as I need thousands. There is a level that houses a very large swimming pool, uncompleted project, above the level where camping is possible. It has an island in the middle that is 8m x 6m. My plan is to have this as a natural pond type pool. We are a friendly lot and prefer to know you if that is against your own privacy needs. This is a lovely private acreage in a cleared rainforest setting with wonderful mountain views and directly opposite, across the road, a lovely swimming lagoon of Crystal Cascades, being 2km up the road. The photos show the view, the lagoon, a section of the river, the street, the house and a few potential level areas for parking your caravan. I sentimentally named it after my mothers birth home in Yorkshire, UK, given I don't plan to build anymore homes, having built or worked extensively on 12 others.

Caravan parks near Cairns guide

Overview

Whether you're leaving your caravan to snorkel the Great Barrier Reef or to spot endangered cassowaries in Daintree National Park, or taking the Skyrail cable car or train to the rainforest village of Kuranda, Cairns offers plenty to do. Summer can be hot and humid, so head inland to the Atherton Tableland towns of Mareeba and Atherton, or north to the beaches of Palm Cove and Port Douglas. In the city, cool off in the man-made swimming lagoon on the Esplanade overlooking the Coral Sea or bike along the foreshore. Stock up on fresh produce at Rusty's Markets or time your winter visit to see the Indigenous Art Fair in July. Cairns' caravan parks and campgrounds offer modern facilities including powered sites, laundry facilities, and free wifi, and they're typically a great base for exploring north Queensland's rich natural heritage.
