Trends in hot suburbs change as new infrastructure breathes life and popularity brings with it amenities that increase the value of those suburbs. The latest big change in Cairns is the move in popularity from the Northern beaches to Cairns Southside.

Beach living will always be a beautiful lifestyle. However, when it comes down to brass tacks, most of us only have time to go on the weekends.  The increase in traffic to and from schools, work and the airport, and suddenly, Cairns Southside is smore convenient.

To meet the demands of Cairns locals who are more attracted to the Cairns southside, Fortress Developments has introduced a number of attractive communities for the first home buyer and upgrade buyer.

These developments will assist buyers to pursue home sites that offer reduced driving times for private schools, the airport and the beautiful esplanade. Rather than sacrificing style and surroundings, these Cairns Southside developments offer a tree change that embraces open community spaces, stunning mountainous views as well as convenience.

Bellmere Lane is tailored for acreage lovers who value privacy but still want the luxury of close amenities.


The quality of the open spaces, as well as your beautiful brand new home, is undeniable, but what is now becoming even more apparent to our buyers is the attraction of the Southside location. Homeowners now realise that convenience to a range of quality schools by being out of that busy Northside channel is what’s proving to be the biggest lifestyle change of all.
