Palm Cove Highlights
Since the mid-1980s, Palm Cove has developed from a sleepy, little beach community into a wannabe-chic resort town, and still manages to be a pretty spot despite all the development. The beach has a stinger net in summer, plenty of shady melaleuca trees, and views of the small, privately owned Double Island.
Palm Cove's jetty is regarded by local anglers as the area's best fishing spot and is a great place for a stroll. Quicksilver and Sunlover stop at the jetty for pick-ups on the way out to the reef. If you have still haven't seen enough Australian wildlife, head to Wild World, the Tropical Zoo.
