Palm Cove - Conference & Incentive Destination

It is one of the most breathtaking beachfront locations in the world. Yet it is just a 30 minute drive north from Cairns International Airport, the central business district, and major shopping complexes.

It has a village like atmosphere, but elegance too.

A place of unspoiled natural beauty, it sits like a jewel on the turquoise Coral Sea – facing the Great Barrier Reef, and with the mystical World Heritage Tropical Rainforests of Australia as its backdrop.

Clean, unpolluted, this is a friendly, welcoming tropical paradise that will both inspire and reward.

There’s the superb Angsana Resort and Spa, and the truly luxurious Sebel Reef House & Spa. Both offer 60+ rooms and suites.

The larger Grand Mercure Rockford Esplanade Resort is famous for its giant swimming pool set amidst ancient Melaleuca trees. Novotel Rockford Palm Cove Resort home to the Palm Cove Conference Centre is located at the north of the village.

The Peppers Beach Club & Spa has its own large and beach fringed lagoon pool. Sea Temple Resort & Spa offers truly 5 star apartment excellence. Double Island, just 10 minutes from Palm Cove is available on a whole–of–island basis.
