The 10 Top Things To Do In Palm Cove, Australia

The best, most fun things to do in Brisbane today!

1. Day Spa 

Relax, unwind, and be pampered. Add to your beach escape with a visit to Radiant Health and Beauty, the spa retreat at Grand Chancellor. Treat yourself to a number of massage, waxing, nail, tinting, and bodyworks treatments.  

2. Palm Cove Esplanade Walk 

Gifted the name Palm Cove for the large number of palm trees that line the shore, take a stroll along the golden sand beaches and in amongst the palms on the esplanade walk. We recommend also checking out the pier and capturing your walk on camera.  

3. Pandanus Gallery  

Discover Aboriginal culture through the platform of art. Filled with works from Aboriginal artists around the country, Pandanus Gallery is home to limited edition prints and impressive exhibitions. You may even want to take one home! 

4. Markets 

On the hunt for some holiday souvenirs? The Palm Cove Markets is the place you want to be looking! On the first Sunday of every month, the market showcases local crafts, food, and gifts. Bring your friends and support local. 

5. Hot Air Ballooning 

Indulgence is key to any good holiday. We think that Hot Air Ballooning over beautiful Queensland is the perfect kind of holiday indulgence and one that is best shared with loved ones. Treat you and your family or friends to an amazing sunrise experience.  

6. Horse Riding  

Adventure is everywhere in Far North Queensland and horse riding is no exception. Whether you are a first timer, beginner, or experienced rider, Palm Cove’s local horse-riding companies will ensure that you have a fantastic day out on horseback through beautiful scenery.  

7. Willams Esplanade 

For a bit of retail therapy, head along to Williams Esplanade where you will find an eclectic mix of boutiques, outlets and local stores. Only a 10-minute walk away from Grand Chancellor, you’ll easily be able to carry your shopping bargains back to the hotel.  

8. Palm Cove Playground 

Brought the kids along for the ride? Let the children entertain themselves for hours playing on the Palm Cove playground while Mum and Dad cook up a feast on one of the public barbeques. A fun and free activity for the whole family (perhaps leave the sliding and swinging to the kids though!).  

9. Treat yourself to ice-cream 

Don’t question it, just do it! Leave your holiday with no regrets and pop into Numi or Scoops for heavenly gelato and ice cream. With an amazing range of flavours these two ice cream parlours are our favourite places to visit on a humid summers day.  

10. Cane Toad Racing 

Yes, you heard correctly, cane toad racing! A unique Australian past time is still alive and well at the Iron Bar in Port Douglas. At only $5 per person to watch the racing, this experience is a steal! Head along at 8pm, settle in with a bevvie and let the games begin.
