We hope the webcam's live video stream will be beneficial to the regions tourism industry by giving viewers a realistic indication of the current weather in Cairns. The camera has a 20x optical zoom and offers 270° view of the Cairns City and Marina. The afternoons offer the best light. Watch the reef vessels returning and get a close up view of the fruit bats heading over the inlet . LTN members are welcome to embed the camera on their own websites. Here is the link to the embed instructions: You can view the embedded camera feed on the Things to Do in Cairns website: Special thanks to Gregor and the team at Pacific Hotel for offering the great location & hosting the camera. For any special requirements regarding embedding the camera on your website please contact Jodi Nelson.

One of the best tours we have done

Posted: 18 May 2017

We went on one Northern Experience Eco Tour when we visited Cairns in January 2017 and we had a wonderful experience despite the intermittent rain on the day. The tour guide Brett was a fantastic tour guide. He was friendly, helpful and very enthusiastic about his job. An additional bonus was that he has studied ecotourism and had loads of knowledge about plants and animals in the rainforest, so we learned a lot from him. It's a fully scheduled day tour, covering the Atherton Tablelands, a cruise on Lake Barrine, Miillaa Miillaa Falls, and Paronella Park. The tropical scenery was stunningly beautiful especially at Lake Barrine and Paronella Park where we listened to an interesting history of a Spanish castle and had a delightful guided tour. The tour had a bit of everything for everyone: nature, historical places, cruise, bush walking... There was an option to swim at the waterfall, and if you are a keen bush walker like us, you can also walk around Lake Barrine along the boardwalk in the thick rainforest instead of going on the lake cruise, although you have to walk briskly to be able to cover the 5km in an hour so to make it back in time for the next destination. The lunch at Roscoe's was not bad either and the fruit stall stop for bananas was great. In addition, because we took a different route back to Cairns, we were able to see more, including the wettest town in Australia - Babinda, the town which won the Golden Gumboot! It was a fantastic tour with a great price too and we highly recommend it! We also highly recommend Jane as a tour guide

Tick all the right boxes

Posted: 13 May 2017

This tour certainly ticked all the right boxes for me. Beautiful scenery, sensational lunch, very informative commentary, not rushed at all and finishing the day at Paronella Park was perfect. The park is an inspiration and well worth seeing. We had plenty of time to explore after we finished the guided walk. Fun day out and highly recommended.

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.
