Police are treating as suspicious the death of a woman whose lifeless body was found in a home south of Cairns.

The woman's body was discovered in the Bentley Park home on Wednesday afternoon after someone known to her raised the alarm.

The Cairns Post has quoted a number of neighbours saying they often heard arguing and fighting at the home.

"I called the police twice at the end of last year," a neighbour who wished to remain anonymous said.

"They're not my kind of people".

Police are expected to release an update on Thursday.
