cairnsae white rock is very popular with young families

Written by The ReReport

SITTING at the start of Cairns’ growing southern corridor, White Rock is perfectly positioned to take advantage of a host of new infrastructure coming to the region in coming years.
With its safe and friendly neighbourly vibes and access to great schools, White Rock is very popular with young families.
And, despite being on the southside, it is still close to the city and several prominent schools meaning the affordable suburb appeals to families through its convenience.
Schools within the suburb’s vicinity include Trinity Anglican School, White Rock State School, St Mary’s Catholic College, St Gerard Majella Primary School, Woree State School and Woree State High School. There is a kindergarten and childcare centre in White Rock.
Trinity Anglican School has been located at White Rock for 35 years.
From the top of its purpose built STEM facility, the view of the actual White Rock and surrounding landscape is spectacular.
Principal Paul Sjogren said there were benefits to being located at White Rock.
“Being on the southside of Cairns has its advantages; with easy access to Innisfail and Mission Beach areas while still being 15 minutes out of Cairns City. We have a wide range of great local shops and food outlets, and can be self-sufficient,” he said.
The nearby suburbs of Woree, Bentley Park and Mount Sheridan offer general shops but the closest major shopping centre is at Earlville, about eight minutes’ drive north, and offers large grocery outlets, speciality stores and a cinema complex.
As well, an emergency operating theatre will be part of a new $25 million medical centre built to service Cairns’ southern suburbs.
The Queensland Government unveiled plans for the Cairns Southern Corridor Medical Centre in April this year and the construction contract for which is expected to be awarded within the next financial year.
It will be designed to be used as a temporary emergency response facility in the event of a natural disaster, if services become interrupted at Cairns Hospital.
