Palm Cove is a gorgeous palm tree lined beachside village just under 30km north of Cairns in Far North Queensland. With several high quality resorts, stunning natural surrounds, a comfortable tropical climate and recently voted as Australia’s Cleanest Beach it’s no wonder Palm Cove is one of Queensland’s tourist hot spots. Due to it’s size there is virtually no public transport in Palm Cove so for those flying in to Cairns International Airport or staying in the area and need a way to get around then your best bet is to pick up a rental car. Car hire in Palm Cove can be booked right here through Skedaddle, we offer the best price guarantee on car rental with most major hire companies which operate in the region.
Things to see and do
Palm Cove is surrounded by the beautiful Daintree National Park to the west and the World Heritage Listed Great Barrier Reef to the east. If you’re interested in exploring either (or even both!) there is a huge selection of guided tours you can take, or you can explore at your own leisure and pace. Several wilderness and wildlife safari tours allow you to explore the picturesque Daintree by foot, coach or even 4WD. The Great Barrier Reef can be admired by glass bottom boat, yacht, catamaran, scuba diving or even by helicopter depending on your budget. Most major reef tours will depart from either Cairns or Port Douglas. Of course no stay in Palm Cove would be complete without a day relaxing on ‘Australia’s Cleanest Beach’ enjoying a drink in the shade of the village’s famous palm trees.
