The Girl Academy is where young mums and their bubs live and learn together.



The school is located at Wangetti Beach, halfway between Cairns and Port Douglas. It is a peaceful bush setting with miles of space for children to play, and a short walk to the beach.


Mums and babies have their own room close to open plan family areas, kitchen facilities and lounges.


Facilities include:

  • Purpose built living space for mothers and babies
  • Lounge areas
  • Family rooms for sisters, aunties and grandmothers
  • Recreation and games room
  • Catering kitchen
  • Computer rooms
  • Library
  • Early Learning Centre
  • Basketball court
  • Swimming pool
  • Café—student run business

“It’s in a good spot, it has lots of open space, kids love space, young ones love to run. You can take your kids down to the beach-side for a walk or fishing.” ~ Young Cape York mum

“The facilities are amazing, mothers and babies will have their own room. It’s away from everything, you are able to concentrate here.” ~ Shanneen Cannon

Girls undertake an individual learning program based on their age and academic level.
