    Neighbours said the children lived there with their stepfather. Murray St is a diverse multicultural area with a mix of both private and public housing in a western suburb of Cairns.

    It has had a stigma in previous years as places to avoid for people looking to move to the area.

    But more recently these suburbs, particularly the northern parts of Manoora, have become more popular with people looking to enter the Cairns property market.

    OMG, how horrific!

    I have other thoughts but will keep them to myself for the time being.
