Located halfway between Cairns and Port Douglas, Palm Cove is an idyllic resort town famous for its village charm, signature restaurants, pristine beach, health spas - and fewer tourists that most other tropical hot spots.
And while you'll find it quieter and more relaxed than most Tropical North Queensland tourist towns, it's not short on things to do.
Spend lazy days combing the fashion stores, galleries and boutique shops on the main strip of Palm Cove. Enjoy a spot of fishing off the jetty, curl up with a book on the beach, have a hit of golf, go sailing on the Great Barrier Reef and finish your day with cocktails at sunset.
If adventure's more your thing, you've come to the right place. Take your pick from white water rafting on the Tully River, snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef, rainforest excursions, island hopping on kayaks.
And there are plenty of things to keep the kids busy - from a blast on the jet skis to crocodile feeding at Harley's Crocodile Adventures.
