Attractions near the Sanctuary Palm Cove
Board the Kuranda Scenic Train
Experience the ancient rainforest scenery of Far North Queensland in comfort on this historic railway. More than just a means of getting from A to B, the Kuranda Scenic Railway is a marvel of Australian engineering, winding its way through the challenging terrain of Barron Gorge National Park to offer access to waterfalls and other popular sights.
The railway was completed in 1891 and connects Cairns with Kuranda and surrounding attractions. Get up close to indigenous wildlife at the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary and Bird World, and pick up a souvenir from Kuranda markets before you leave.
Day trip to Fitzroy Island
One of several islands within the Great Barrier Reef area, Fitzroy Island is very popular for day trips. This unspoilt tropical island is suited to everyone from families with children to couples on romantic breaks, with its calm waters and rainforests waiting to be explored. Boats leave regularly from Palm Cove.
Fitzroy Island also offers more than just wilderness. You'll see plenty of local activity, from restaurants and gift shops to professional dive schools where you can gain your certification and see the beautiful reefs. Other popular activities include kayaking and traversing inland using well-maintained walking trails.
