White Rock

White Rock, a residential suburb on the outskirts of Cairns, is 10 km south of the city centre. It is on the Bruce Highway and the North Coast railway line, and is immediately north of Edmonton. It was named after White Rock Peak (574 m) in the Freshwater Creek State Forest, 2.5 km to the west of the Bruce Highway.

Several watercourses run down from White Rock Peak, ending in wetlands on the east of the suburb. The highway and the railway follow the high ground on the west of White Rock.
