Where you’ll be

Palm Cove, Queensland, Australia

Nestled between Cairns city centre and Port Douglas in Queensland’s tropical north, Palm Cove is one of the region’s most beautiful beach villages. It provides an idyllic base for exploring the area’s notable attractions such as the Great Barrier Reef, Wet Tropical World Heritage Area and Kuranda Village. Palm Cove boasts excellent cafes, boutique shopping and numerous day spas worth treating yourself at – in fact, Palm Cove has been dubbed the “Spa Capital of Australia.” Check out Vie Spa or Reef House Spa. Dine at lauded restaurant Nu Nu directly on the waterfront, and for brunch, tuck into the all-day menu at Vivo. From Palm Cove you can kayak to pretty Double Island, swim in the year-round warm waters, or explore the surrounding beaches Ellis Beach, Clifton Beach and Trinity Beach.
