Tropical North Queensland Accommodation

Tropical North Queensland is the gateway to the one and only Great Barrier Reef. It’s also home to the world’s oldest tropical rainforest – the World Heritage listed Daintree Rainforest. Mix in ancient indigenous culture, heavenly beaches and some of Australia’s best produce, and you’re going to want to stay a while. Accommodation options range from quiet, beach front resorts in Port Douglas and Palm Cove and full-service hotels in the heart of the action in Cairns to easy-going family camping spots and caravan parks ready to entertain the kids.

If you’re after an underwater, Great Barrier Reef adventure, think about booking your accommodation in Cairns or Port Douglas, where you’ll have a variety of tours and operators to choose from as well as easy access to the other activities in the region.

Getting away from it all on a romantic escape or honeymoon? Try Palm Cove, where you can be pampered at a luxurious, full-service resort, take in the sunrise in a hammock on the palm lined beach or dine at a sophisticated, alfresco restaurant. Or leave the mainland altogether and get marooned on Lizard Island or Bedarra Island – some of the most unique, luxury accommodation in Queensland.

Budget friendly options for families and backpackers include caravan parks along the coast and in the Atherton Tablelands as well as hostels in Cairns and Port Douglas.
