Title : For Fish you cannot beat Far North Queensland

It’s a strange thing but many young children seem to be deeply suspicious of fish and particularly shellfish. 

Now we don’t know why that is and we suspect not too many child psychology experts do either. Our best even if amateurish guess is that it’s because parents issue so many warnings about the need to be careful with bones in fish that children at a very young age start to develop an intuitive fear of the foodstuff in its entirety. 

For all the obvious reasons, including that of health, that’s a great pity but a holiday in Far North Queensland just might change their perception.

As you might imagine, the fresh fish along the coast here is simply superb.  At all of our resorts you’ll get the opportunity to try great fresh fish dishes that will simply taste different to those you’ll find anywhere else.  We like to think that’s simply because it’s straight out of the sea and on to the plates but we guess it could also be a little bit to do with the palm-lined tropical ambiance of our towns and resorts!

Once you’ve tried something like crispy skin coral trout with green mango salad, well, we are confident you’ll know what we mean.

If your children are a little bit fussy about shellfish, don’t give up.  Try them with some mud crab and their taste buds just might be converted.  In fact, it goes particularly well with some champagne but of course that should be reserved for the adults!

Our Cairns, Port Douglas and Palm Cove accommodation all offer easy access to some of the best seafood restaurants you’ll find anywhere.  So, even if it’s not a cuisine you and your family normally pursue, try it out here and it just might change your ideas of what seafood is all about.   

Check our private apartments in the Sea Temple Palm Cove Complex offer you the ultimate in extravagance! Enjoy a penthouse with private rooftop spa, swim-out apartment & direct beach access.
