Palm Cove, in Far north Queensland is an ideal holiday destination to take the kids to. It is located mid way between Cairns and Port Douglas along what is one of Australia’s most scenic sections of coast line and close to spectacular rainforests, the Great Barrier Reef, wildlife parks, golf courses and tourist attractions like the Skyrail and Tjapukai aboriginal experience. Palm Cove is famous for its beach which is patrolled and protected by stinger nets during the wet season. The beach is the ideal place for the kids to have fun. Palm Cove also has many apartment style resorts that line the beachfront or are located close by. This type of BLocal beachfront accommodation lends itself perfectly to families with kids as it is great to be able to put the kids to bed in their own room and catering costs are kept to a minimum.
Palm Cove is close to everything that the kids will like. You can take them to see a crocodile at the local wildlife park or you can make the trip to Kuranda aboard the spectacular Skyrail. This gondola ride travels up the escarpment from the coastal plain to the Atherton Tableland at treetop level, placing you almost in the rainforest. Kuranda is a quaint little town set in the rainforests and has many great tourist attractions. The trip back to Cairns can be done on the train and the rail service crosses the spectacular bridge across the Barron River, right at the Barron falls.
It is easy to take the kids to the Daintree rainforest for the day. The trip includes crossing the Daintree River by vehicular barge and then the road winds through the rainforest to Cape Tribulation. If you have a four wheel drive vehicle you can continue north along the Bloomfield Track that eventually takes you to Cooktown. On the way home, stop off at the Mossman Gorge for a swim in the magnificent mountain river.
Palm Cove is right at the center of the far north Queensland tourist region and the ideal place for your next holiday with the kids.
