The Mulgrave River at Upper Goldsborough is just one of the suburb’s drawcards.GOLDSBOROUGH is the perfect southern suburb for families and couples wanting to live the acreage dream. Cairns Property Office South principal Robyn Hawley-Whitton said the suburb had been rolled out stage by stage, and each stage was snapped up by owners with a vision for their lifestyles. “It’s the big Australian country dream,” Ms Hawley-Whitton said. “People want more space to get away from the small blocks of town. People who live here have a dream to move onto acreage. “The men want their sheds, and they know that you need a fairly large block of land to have a fairly large shed on it.” Ms Hawley-Whitton said there were two distinct buyers in the area. “It’s highly sought after by people who are looking for more room,” she said. “There are a lot of people who own here who work away from Cairns and want to retire to Goldsborough in a few years. A lot of people use it as an investment in the time in between. “There are also owners who are onto their second or third homes and are looking for a sizeable acreage.
