Freshwater, a residential suburb, is 8 km north-west of central Cairns. It is immediately east of the Freshwater Creek, a stream flowing north from Redlynch and the Freshwater Creek National Park.

The suburb is on the Cairns to Kuranda railway line (1887), and residential development settled along the south side of the railway line on land rising back to the Whitfield Range.
