Earlville, a residential suburb, is 5 km south-west of central Cairns. It lies along the Chinaman and Clark Creeks, and was on the Balaclava sugar estate owned by Edward Earl. When the estate was subdivided for housing it was named Earlville.

The Balaclava primary school (1954) on the Bruce Highway is just outside Earlville's eastern boundary. The Catholic primary school (1964) is in Earlville, together with the Stockland Drive-in (1980) shopping centre which has two discount department stores, two supermarkets, over 120 other shops and cinemas.
