The boutique Cairns Queenslander Apartments and Restaurant in North Cairns is undergoing a $3 million expansion and refurbishment.
The new-look accommodation is due to open in mid May. Company director Mike Spaulding said, “I’m putting my money where my mouth is,” he said. “There aren’t many accommodation properties or tourism businesses in the Cairns city area taking the initiative to redevelop in our current economic climate.”
Mr Spaulding said an extra floor had been added to the building for an extra 22 rooms as well as a new roof. He said the upgrade was taking place with no impact on existing guests, services and facilities.
“When completed we will be adding more staff, probably four to six full-time staff on top of the 30 to 40 we already employ,” he said.
