Fabulous Day Out

Posted: 20 Jun 2017

Our tour guide Steve made this day extra special, he was so informative from the moment we were picked up from our hotel until we were dropped off in the evening. He went out of his way to make sure everyone saw everything at every attraction we stopped at. He really loves Cairns and the surrounding area and it comes across in his commentary and the fact that he ensures everyone gets to experience everything. It is a long day driving up to the southern tablelands, seeing the falls, Paronella Park etc so make sure you take water. If you get Steve as your guide you will be indeed lucky.

The Palm Cove beach image chosen to feature on Monopoly’s new Australian board game..

Far Northern scene chosen for Monoploy game AN idyllic hammock scene on Palm Cove beach has been chosen to feature on Monopoly’s new Australian board game. The image is one of just three Queensland scenes for a coveted “green” spot on the famous board game. The others are the white sands of Whitehaven Beach in the Whitsundays and a surfer on the Gold Coast. Monopoly Australia describes the hammock photograph as: “The steamy tropical north is packed with plenty of bucket list material. Dive into the Great Barrier Reef one day. Zip line through the Daintree Rainforest the next”. In November last year Far Northern residents were asked to vote for the region to appear on the board game. Tourism Tropical North Queensland chairman Max Shepherd said the publicity would be invaluable. “Securing a spot on a board game with such broad appeal as Monopoly would be priceless marketing for Tropical North Queensland, encouraging more visitors to want to come to our destination,” he said. “Sharing our Reef, rainforest and hospitality with the world is what this region does best, so let’s make sure Tropical North Queensland gets the recognition it deserves.” Nick Dalton, The Cairns Post June 14, 2017 1:56pm

About Palm Cove

Where the foothills of the rainforest clad mountains meet the palm fringed beaches of the Coral Sea nestles Cairns' premier beach destination - Palm Cove.

A dawn walk in the ever present company of brightly coloured lorikeets, kookaburras, flocks of sulphur crested cockatoos, wallabies and rare green tree frogs, belies the fact that Palm Cove is just 20 minutes north of the Cairns International Airport.

Palm Cove, your ultimate lifestyle destination, is both affordable and caters for all accommodation needs, from international standard resorts to self catering holiday apartments, all carefully positioned amongst majestic melaleuca trees interspersed with coconut palms and tropical gardens.

Wherever you stay in Palm Cove you have access to the World Heritage rainforest, the Great Barrier Reef boarding from the Palm Cove Pier or you can simply enjoy nature's playground with an exciting challenge and adventures like white water rafting, canoeing, horse riding or trekking. Those who are less energetic can enjoy a fascinating glimpse of this ancient world dominated by pre-historic tree ferns, travelling by four-wheel drives, rainforest cableway, train or coach.

Palm Cove, with its distinctive character and intimate ambience, its old world charm with splashes of tropical colour, its Australian architecture, its idyllic setting, glorious sunshine, serenity and security - will enchant you! So take a leisurely stroll along the picturesque esplanade and enjoy the experience of the village shopping precinct with its many specialty shops. Take a swim on the patrolled beach, walk to the tranquil beaches of Clifton or Kewarra.

It's your holiday... floral scents, flashes of gigantic butterflies and the tiniest of brilliantly coloured sun birds, balmy nights and a magnificent beach front setting - this is Palm Cove. So whether you do it all or chose to do nothing, Palm Cove will leave you with a lifetime of memories to treasure.

Palm Cove is Cairns' most popular holiday beach, for locals and visitors. Its long sandy beach is lined by tropical coconut trees on one side and the clear, blue waters of the Coral Sea on the other. The beachfront esplanade is shaded by ancient paperbark trees and peppered with hotels, restaurants and retail opportunities. Cairns and its international and domestic airport is a 40-minute drive south, the rainforest is on the mountains behind you and the Great Barrier Reef lies offshore, waiting to be explored. A stunning destination in paradise.
