Bentley Park House
Places of Significance - Cairns Regional Council

The two story Bentley Park house is of local significance as a long standing site associated with the development of the area. Originally owned by Isaac Hartill, the house became home to a number of well to do families and increasingly became the centre of social activities in the area of the developing township of Edmonton (originally called Hambledon). The house was at one time owned by a Cairns Councillor Mr. Charles Butler and occupied during the Second World War by General Macarthur during stays in Cairns. The house as seen today is just a small portion of what was once "Bentley Park Farm".
