Simonds knows how great of an achievement building a home is – whether it’s your first, your second or the start of your investment portfolio. And because of that, they are dedicated to delivering a personalised customer experience that offers you more, in every sense of the word. Their decades of experience has given us more knowledge and understanding of what it takes to bring your vision to life.

Crystalbrook Flynn is 'home base' for the 3 day National Awards experience and is just steps away from the recently upgraded Cairns Esplande. Right on the water and adjacent lush parkland the Esplanade is at the heart of the action and where you will find many Cairns entertainment options. 

Crystalbrook Bailey is the boutique 'arthotel' style sister venue to the Flynn. Located one street back, it is also just a hop, skip and jump from the Cairns Esplanade
