What's in it for you?
Living in Babinda
A small rural sugar town approximately 60km, or 50 minutes drive south of Cairns, Babinda is home to around 1260 residents. Set in a stunning location, Babinda is shadowed by Queensland's two highest mountains – Mt Bartle Frere and Mt Bellenden Kerr, which form part of the World Heritage listed Wooroonooran National Park. And while at first glance, Babinda looks just like any other rural town surrounded by cane fields, it is in fact a hidden paradise just begging to be explored. Crystal clear mountain streams, pristine rainforest and spectacular waterfalls are right on your doorstep.
The traditional people of the Babinda area are the Wayurr Yidinji people, and the town's name comes from the Wanyurr Yudinji words ‘Bunna Binda' meaning ‘water passing over your shoulder'. The area is home to beautiful beaches, great fishing, groovy Art Deco heritage listed buildings and fascinating Aboriginal legends such as that of the Boulders. Exciting weekend adventures await you in this stunning part of the Far North.
