Palm Cove is such a lovely unspoilt relaxing holiday destination so it is no wonder families flock to this little beachside village during the school holidays and Christmas Holidays season.

Palm Cove is also a safe destination and free from all the commercial hype you see in other popular holiday regions across Australia so everyone can truly take the time to relax and enjoy each other’s company in a tropical atmosphere.

There are so many types of holiday accommodation choices and due to Palm Cove’s strategic geographic location, guests can choose to partake in reef trips that depart from either Port Douglas or Cairns.  

This is because Palm Cove is located half way between each of them.

Coach pick-ups are direct from their resort accommodation. So all you have to do is choose... a Cairns or Port Douglas Reef Trip?

Cairns is just a 40 min drive south and Port Douglas is 40 min drive north.

Did you know the drive north to Port Douglas is also known as "The Great Barrier Reef Drive" and is one of Australia most iconic ‘must do’ drives. See photo below.
