Cairns, Yorkeys Knob or Palm Cove?

Jump to last reply

I'm playing virtual travel agent. My 35yo brother in law is currently on holiday in Brisbane, and finds himself with an extra 5 days to kill. He's booked a flight into Cairns next week, and is wondering where to stay. Right now he's leaning toward Yorkeys Knob, but that might be because of the name. :-) (He's looking at Half Moon Bay Apts if anyone knows the area...)

He's got golf clubs with him, and loves the beach. I'm sending him info on Ocean Spirit and Reef Magic snorkeling tours, as well as Daintree air's trips to Lizard Island.

I don't think he's planning to have a car, and he's probably somewhat on a budget when it comes to accomodations (under $100?) so he can spend more on experiences.

Any advice you can share would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
-Kat
