Cairns, Queensland (QLD), Australia


Palm Cove in Far North Queensland, Australia premier beach. It is located 27 kilometres (17 mi) north of the city of Cairns. It is named after the palm trees that line the beach.

Palm Cove, a unique, quiet and relaxing village by the sea where centuries old "paperbark" Melaleuca trees line the casual esplanade, is a tropical paradise which provides for all of your needs and ensures your holiday will be one to remember in an atmosphere of relaxed sophistication.

The major industry and source of wealth for Palm Cove is tourism. People come from all over the world to take in the beauty of Palm Cove's beach. Of the 180 scheduled weekly flights at Cairns International Airport, 100 are inbound arrivals. Palm Cove is also a major tourist destination due to its proximity to natural wonders such as the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest. Palm Cove is the location of many world renowned resorts and hotels such as the Drift Resort, Angsana Resort and Spa, the Mantra Amphora Resort, Peppers Beach Club, and the Sebel. Also, because most of the people who live in Palm Cove are only there part time, there are a large number of apartment and part time living options in the area. Palm Cove gained national recognition with recently being named Australia's Cleanest Beach.
