Things To Do

Palm Cove Village - where the rainforest meets the sea where the white sands beckon and the palm trees sway in the tropical breeze where the everyday ends and the extraordinary begins.

Just twenty minutes north of Cairns International Airport, cosmopolitan Palm Cove Village is ideally located for exploring the magical attractions of Tropical North Queensland.

Set sail for the colourful coral gardens of the Great Barrier Reef directly from Palm Cove jetty. Take a journey through the ancient rainforests of the Daintree and Cape Tribulation. Head for the hills and the natural wonders of the Atherton Tablelands.

Enjoy a round of golf on a Master's standard course. Get your ticket to adventure with white-water rafting or a 4WD safari. Or simply relax on our palm-fringed beach and contemplate the Coral Sea.

Close to Palm Cove, there's so much to see and do that the hardest part of your holiday could be deciding what not to do. And in the Village itself - where no building is higher than the coconut palms - you'll find restaurants, village shopping, bars and cafes.

Our resident tour specialist, Colin Benn can make all the arrangements for hire cars and tours. He has the local knowledge, so please email Colin for all tour enquiries or bookings.
