Title : The Beauties of Palm Cove and its Local Services
We're not going to apologise for waxing lyrical about Palm Cove.
It's a simply beautiful place with a stunning beach and marvellous countryside. It also has some pretty amazing inland attractions that will keep you amused for hours and days on end.
Our Palm Cove accommodation is super luxurious and we are always keen to stress the relaxing and get-away-from-it-all nature of our holidays in this area.
Even so, we are sometimes asked about some of the local facilities and services in Palm Cove because not everyone wants to spend their entire holiday simply in the grounds of their apartment or on the beach. So, here is a quick overview that is correct at time of writing.
It's about 26 kilometres north of Cairns City and is pretty much geared up to discerning holidays and holidaymakers. It has about 20 restaurants of varying sizes and along the esplanade you can get some takeaway food.
It's a very much ‘laid-back’ sort of place but there are some very decent basic services including car hire, grocery store, chemist and a tourist information centre. If you do discover that you can’t find what you want in Palm Cove, there are buses all through the day to and from Cairns.
If you fancy getting somewhere quickly and at your convenience rather than the bus company’s, a taxi one way is about $35.00.
There's also a great wildlife park (Wild World) within walking distance and it's one of the relatively few parts of Australia where you can still see wild kangaroos close to the town centre.
Overall, if you are looking for frenetic nightlife and adrenaline boosts then Palm Cove may be a little bit sleepy for you. On the other hand, if you value rest, relaxation and stunning natural beauty, then you should get yourself up to Palm Cove as fast as possible.
