A small community of about 1,200 people, Palm Cove sits beside the clear blue waters of the South Pacific.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. Start off your visit on the 19th (Thu): kick back and relax at Trinity Beach. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: take some stellar pictures from Rex Lookout, then identify plant and animal life at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, then look for gifts at Annie's at the Beach, and finally kick back and relax at Palm Cove Beach.

Make your Palm Cove itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.
