5 November 2018/ Accommodation
When you sign up with us at Serenity at the Beach for an apartment accommodation in Palm Cove Queensland you are in for a treat. Not only are you signing up for a luxurious shorefront vacation accommodation at a competitive price, but you are also availing the chance to witness a number of local attractions at a close distance. Palm Cove is home to a lot of natural sights, sceneries, flora and fauna. There is so much to experience here that a single vacation is not enough.
Among the amusements and natural sights you can enjoy here, some of the most prominent ones are:
Hot Air Ballooning Over Palm Cove
One of the many ways to absorb the natural sights and scenic beauty of Palm Cove is to go on a hot air balloon ride. The hot air balloon rides in Cairns make way for a sweeping, panoramic view of Palm Cove and its shoreline.
Balloon rides in the late afternoon, just before the onset of dusk make for an experience that leaves you speechless. Alternately, you can go for an early morning hot air balloon tour of Palm Cove as well.
The Crystal Caves
The Crystal Caves are one of the biggest attractions of the Tropical North. Tourists can explore the tunnels and grottos within the conservatory for hours.
There are almost 600 pieces of various precious gems, stones, and uncut crystals at the Caves. One of the biggest perks of visiting this attraction is that tourists can happily touch and photograph the exhibits.
The Paronella Park is a must visit for those who are fond of exotic flora. The 5 hectares-big estate next to the Mena Creek Falls is home to over 7000 varieties of different plant specimens. These specimens are showcased in their natural habitat as a maintained rain forest.
The plants are not all there for the visitors to see, but The Mamu Tropical Skywalk offers an expansive, panoramic view of the region as far as your eyes take you. The venue also has provisions for hosting marriage ceremonies and picnics!
Great Barrier Reef Tours
There is very little that is unknown about the famous Great Barrier Reefs. The Great Barrier Reef is renowned across the world for being an exquisite, naturally spawned ecosystem that is home to a variety of fish, sea creatures, marine plant life and more.
Snorkelling in the Great Barrier Reef is an activity that finds its place on most tourists’ ‘To-Do list’. There is so much to witness under the water, gently swimming through the reef among the exotic species of turtles and fishes.
Kuranda Scenic Railway
The Kuranda Scenic Railway is a must for the visitors to the tropical north area and a delight for the children to experience the wonders of the scenic railway as it meanders its way through the Macalister Ranges.
Tourists can soak in the sights of mountains, freshwater outlets, rainforests and even waterfalls on this trip.
