Palm Cove

A small community of about 1,200 people, Palm Cove sits beside the clear blue waters of the South Pacific.
Visit Trinity Beach and Four Mile Beach for some beach relaxation. Change things up with these side-trips from Palm Cove: Scuba & Snorkeling (in Cairns) and Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, St Mary’s by The Sea chapel, & more). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Palm Cove Beach, identify plant and animal life at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, and soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers.
