We are thinking of booking a family holiday in July... I'm thinking of Cairns due to it being warm...
It will be DH, DS 4 and DD will be 1. We would like something with a pool, 2 bedrooms, maybe self contained, walking distance to restaurants, beach - we are thinking we'd prefer resort style - any places people have stayed that they could recommend?

There is no beach in cairns city. I was dumbfounded but nothing decent at all. Try stayz.com.au for accommodation.

We found cairns was great if you were young and single but not so family friendly. We loved port Douglas.
We stayed at the Mantra PortSea.
We found the accommodation very nice

Noosa is amazeballs! But kid and family friendly I'd pick mooloolabah or caloundra instead. Great beaches, restaurants, playgrounds and very friendly.

Townsville Is better than cairns...
Hotels, resturants and free waterpark on the beach
Magnetic island is great vacation spot.
If you do go to cairns the best family friendly place is the coconut palms caravan park. It not close to anything but they run great holiday programs and are set up for families.
RAH is right there is no beach in cairns city just a giant mudflat there is a free pool at one end.

About 3 years ago, when DS was 20months I got a scoopon thing for Paradise Palms Resort just outside of cairns. Lots for kids to do! We didn't go into cairns really. Went to the beach near our resort, took the train and sky rail, but otherwise hung out at the resort.

We go to cairns each year and find it very family friendly! We always stay at cairns coconut resort, it's amazing. A few pools, waterpark area, jumping pillows, go karts, huge playground, outdoor movies, free pancake breakfast, cafe on site. It's not in cairns city but they have a courtesy bus. There's a man made beach in the centre of town on the esplanade, a free water park (muddys), a playground and night markets right across the road. We always hire a car and do day trips to trinity beach, port douglas and kuranda. Also the boat out to green island is a nice day out too.
