Yorkey's Knob was the perfect place for a quick week away in the sun. Pristine beach with peace and quiet.
The location is perfect - right on the beach for daily walks and swims and close enough to the city center to enjoy some variety in terms of restaurants and all the activities Cairns has to offer. It is very accessible for those not wanting to hire a car for the week as tour groups are happy to pick ups and drop offs from there and it is a short 15min trip from the airport ($18 shuttle bus is advisable as cabs can be very expensive). There is also a regular busy service that can take you to a local shopping centre where there are the latest shops if you are wanting to self cater.
Lastly, the accommodation was perfect and Trish went out of her way to make my stay as wonderful as possible. She was available for any local 'insights' and discrete in terms of allowing me to have any privacy that was required.
I would definitely recommend Trish and Yorkey's...
