5 Romantic Activities and Experiences in Palm Cove
Whether you’re into action and adventure or relaxation and pampering, we’ve got some great ideas for celebrating!
1. Sail at sunset
If romance is on the cards for your celebration, is there anything more romantic than a sunset? What about aboard a first-class sailing catamaran?
You can enjoy the serenity of sailing on the calm waters of the Coral Sea (home of the Great Barrier Reef), as the sun sinks into the horizon.
This adults-only experience is made even better by ambient music, bubbly and canapes.
This is the perfect way to get a night of celebrations started.
2. Get a bird’s eye view of the Great Barrier Reef
We mentioned how Palm Cove is in close distance to two of the world’s natural wonders, well one of these happens to be the Great Barrier Reef. And while there are plenty of ways to discover its beauty, one of the ways you can really take in the true scope of just how great the reef is from above is via a scenic helicopter ride.
Not only do you get to see the reef you can also admire the beaches of the shoreline and luscious tropical jungle on the mainland.
You’ll be captivated during your flight, watching the various shades of green and turquoise as the sun glimmers off the waters and coral gardens of the reef.
3. Take a day trip to a tropical island
Palm Cove is already a tropical paradise, but if you’re looking for an escape from the rest of the world, you don’t have to travel too far for some special seclusion.
You can take a drive down to Cairns (about 25 minutes), and jump aboard the Fitzroy Flyer Ferry which will take you to the tropical island of Fitzroy Island.
Once on the island, you can take part in all sorts of adventures, from hiking and cocktail drinking, to a turtle rehabilitation centre and basically any kind of water sport imaginable.
If you or your loved one is into action and adventure, Fitzroy Island is a great day trip!
4. Get pampered at the Reef House Day Spa
What could be more special than a pampering session all about you?
The spa at the Reef House hotel is one of the most revered day spas in all of Tropical North Queensland. People travel far and wide to experience their treatments and rituals.
You can get massages, pedicures, facials, and a whole host of other amazing treatments, each of which can be tailored to suit you and your needs.
This activity just screams luxury!
5. See the unique landscape of Tropical North Queensland from a Hot Air Balloon
Hot air ballooning is one of those activities that ignites excitement. Even just the mere spotting of a hot air balloon is exciting.
So, imagine what it’s like to see the incredible and diverse landscape of TNQ from above while you gently float high in the sky.
Your hot air ballooning adventure starts super early, however, the early wake up call is worth it. You can watch the parade of hot air balloons as they are inflated in the morning light. And then as you rise into the sky, so too does the sun for the day.
Definitely a great way to celebrate any occasion.
