Description

Hidden away behind a headland poking out into the Coral Sea, lies one of Tropical North Queensland's best kept secrets, Yorkey's Knob. Just 10 minutes drive north of Cairns Airport, Yorkey's Knob boasts beaches just as beautiful as its northern neighbours, but without the five star price. The laid-back tropical atmosphere and feeling of 'seclusion' is irresistible for those looking to escape, relax and unwind.

The magnificent sweeping deck of the local boat club commands spectacular views of the yachts moored in Half Moon Bay and out to the headland of Trinity Beach. The only view you'll find more impressive is the panoramic vista from on top of the headland itself - simply breathtaking.

Those looking to wet a line are well catered for with many good fishing spots around the bay, beach and mangroves. Keen anglers can also hire a boat and anchor off the bay for a day of fishing in the open sea.

If you like spoiling a good walk with a game of golf you can't go past the local golf course nestled on the fringes of Half Moon Bay. Its impressive position, taking in glorious views of the Coral Sea, makes it one of the most popular courses in the Cairns area.

Yorkey's Knob is just 15 minutes from the Cairns City Centre, just under an hour to Port Douglas and only 10 minutes to the turn-off to Kuranda and the beautiful Atherton Tablelands.
