AN HISTORIC PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT IN QUEENSLAND’S GOLD RUSH COUNTRY


Kernow is an exciting new development in the heart of North Queensland’s mining and cattle county.  Steeped in history but close to the thriving town of Charters Towers, Kernow offers both overnight and short-stay accommodation to discerning business and leisure travelers.

Currently we have 15 fully-furnished and self-contained one & two-bedroom serviced apartments in our Porkellis Wing near to the pool area, and over at the Annex West Wing there are 10 smaller apartments and rooms which range from quirky hotel-style studio Terrace Rooms to our West Wing Apartments which are fully self-contained but smaller than the apartments at the Porkellis Wing.

Please note that currently only children who are age 12 and over are able to stay at or visit Kernow. Children younger than 12 will be welcome at future phases of the development when we build family-friendly accommodation and facilities.

CAREFUL RESTORATION, CUSTOM BUILDS


Formerly a 1950s government asylum, and set on elevated ground surrounded by 200 acres of untamed land, heritage lies at the heart of everything happening at Kernow.  Original buildings have been carefully restored and new-builds will be bold but sympathetic to the setting.  There will be a lively mixed-use community of 400+ dwellings in this lifestyle development.  The environment combines both the services of being in a dynamic country town along with the peace and tranquility of landscaped gardens and outback cattle country.

Amazing stay in a transformed mental asylum. Gorgeous rooms well appointed. ☺ The breakfast in room was really well thought out and perfect. Loved the milk in the jar with cork... just little touches that were considered.

It was a work trip so I couldn’t stay longer. Will adjust my scheduling next time I’m in that part of the country. ☺ A unique property in my experience. It had the feeling of a lodge in Southern Africa. Lots of land surrounding the buildings, superb apartments and charming hosts. ☹ Nothing.
