Set on beautiful grounds next to a river, this fabulous converted Queenslander offers a perfect blend of activity (tennis, swimming, walking) and relaxation. Catering perfectly for our large extended family group spanning generations, the property is spacious enough to allow everyone to come together while affording private corners when required. There is plenty to do locally and easy access to...

It's been awhile since my family and I stayed at Zanzoo, but the pleasant memories are still quite strong. After traveling around...

Zanzoo was a perfect base, away from the hustle and bustle of down-town Cairns, yet within an easy drive of everything....

We stayed at the Zanzoo Retreat between 13th - 16th February 2010. The B&B is located on the outskirts of town but is within a short drive of a pub which serves reasonable meals. The local pizza places will deliver if you do not want to venture out. The Retreat is huge, soley occupied by guests as the owners live...

The situation of Zanzoo is delightful,, but you do need a car. It was lovely to stay in such a quiet spot away from the th hustle and bustle of Cairns. We were lucky to have the whole house to ourselves, and Rosie was an excellent hostess, sorting out trips to the Barrier Reef, and telling us of local places...
