The Bailey, Cairns

Dec 6, 2019

Far North Queensland got a whole lot hipper in the last 12 months. The second of three luxury Crystalbrook Collection hotels to open in Cairns, The Bailey (creative sibling to The Riley) is a bold celebration of art and originality. Green foliage climbs through its foyer and public spaces are littered with artworks from regional and national artists. Balancing high-minded sensibilities is some true-blue Aussie tucker, with a steakhouse and the Milk Bar, which serves up super fun ice-cream sundaes and other nostalgic treats.
