If you like the big tourist type of location then don't waste your time reading this. Yorkeys Knob is a lovely quiet place but it has lots of things going for it, you can stop for a quick break or spend a few hours having a break from the road or just go for a swim. There are holiday resorts... More

We drove around the Marina, looked at the boats, didn't stop, but we still liked what we saw. Looks like a relaxing place for a holiday, with easy access to the beach.

There isn't much there except for a delightful natural beach, there was a lifeguard on duty. The stretch of beach was very long.

When I visitied Cairns a few years ago I got a quick glimpse of Yorkeys Knob. I wish I'd had more time to spend there as Yorkeys Knob is much bigger than I thought it was. Very few people have heard of, or seen Yorkeys Knob. Those who have can't fail to be impressed by Yorkeys Knob. There's plenty to... More

This is a little village nestled between a boat harbour and a beautiful sandy beach. It has a few holiday residential unit blocks but is principlely a residential community. The hinterland to the beach retains much of its natural charm but also has a neat landscaped area at the northern end. We fell in love with it so much we... More

We went to the beach almost every day while we stayed in Yorkeys Knob. The beach is very clean and there are picnic spots up by the road as well as rest rooms. It seemed to be a very popular place for kite surfing, jet skiing, and wind surfing. The sunrise is also beautiful!

This is a family beach and not touristy at all. There is one cafe across from the beach which epitomises the relaxed lifestyle of Yorkeys by often being unattended as the owner is on the beach! The playground and free bbq's are very clean and well maintained. The walk from here along the beach to Holloways is enjoyed by many... More
