The Best Activities & Attractions in Palm Cove, Australia

Have fun in Palm Cove with these tourist attractions and activities!

1. Snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef 

You cannot take a trip to Far North Queensland without exploring the underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef. Book in a snorkeling tour today and be blown away by the colourful sea life and marine life that sits just off the coast.  

2. Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures 

Crikey mate! Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures isn’t a place for snappy decisions, well at least not while the crocodiles are around. Bring the whole family to get up close and personal with crocs and other Australian wildlife.  

3. BirdWorld 

Take a short 30 minute car journey inland from Palm Cove to visit BirdWorld. With over 300 species of birds on display, this is a must see for animal lovers. Bring your camera! 

4. Skyrail Rainforest Cableway 

Zoom through the world’s oldest tropical rainforest and past spectacular waterfalls at Skyrail Rainforest Cableway. Snap more pictures of the lush, green forests from the boardwalk and lookouts. This is not to be missed!  

5. Rainforest Safaris 

If viewing the rainforest from above isn’t your thing, you can appreciate it’s beauty from the comfort of a 4WD. Splash through rivers and creeks, roll through world heritage rainforest and be treated to local knowledge, lunch, and wildlife spotting on a safari.   

6. AJ Hackett Cairns 

Fancy yourself a risk taker? Get your adrenalin pumping as you plunge towards the Great Barrier Reef with AJ Hackett. If a bungy jump isn’t up your alley, perhaps you would like to try the giant jungle swing.  

7. Armour and Artillery Museum 

Lest we forgot. Commemorate, remember, and appreciate the efforts that were put in to protecting Australia during World War II at the Armour and Artillery Museum. Explore the museum’s large collection of vehicles, artillery, and armored pieces. 

8. Watersports 

Spend a day on the water in Palm Cove enjoying the sunshine and scenery. Pick up a paddleboard, kayak, or kiteboard (or try them all!) and set off for some fun. There is no better place than Palm Cove to do this.  

9. Fishing 

While the girls are at the spa, send the boys off to catch dinner! Head off on a fishing excursion and try your luck at getting the catch of the day. With Mackerel, Barramundi, Giant Trevally, Queenfish, and sharks up for grabs we think this activity is such a catch!
