finding apartments in palmcove in april

Still undecided whether to do north queensland or ningaloo reef in april, we are travelling from sydney up the coast to heron isle brisbane area tangalooma etc. Bearing in mind the school holiday period and easter at end march if we decide where we are going to stay when we get there what are our chances of finding an apartment in palmcove, port douglas area for a family of 4 for about 7-10 days? Also what is the chance of finding last minute accom at ningaloo reef in april? Is it easy to find this sort of accomodation at the last minute or would we have no chance and no choice? Please help thanks!

You are aware that Ningaloo is on the other side of the country...

so would involve flights etc?

You'll pick up last minute accom but it may not be what you want and you may need to move rooms etc. If you are later than QLD hols you have a better chance.

Hi. I would highly recommend Clifton Palms apartments, Clifton Beach, literally down the beach from Palm Cove. Excellent place to stay. We've sent many people there and they've all enjoyed it! Clifton Beach itself is beautiful. Great base for whole of the Cairns, Palm Cove, Ellis Beach, Port Douglas area. Lot on the internet to get more info. Enjoy!

Even though it is school holidays it is the low season in this part of the world in April because it is the wet season and you should have no trouble getting accomadation. We stay at Peppers Beach Club when we go to Palm Cove. There are a number of privately managed apartments here. try Belle property or Beach Club 21. It

has a loverly lagoon pool You won't be disappointed.

Villa Paradiso apartments are also a good option. They're right opposite the beach (tiny and quiet road,lined with trees) and has great views over the water. The apartments are beautiful and are 1,2,3 or 4 bedroomed. Paradiso has a pool with plenty of sun and is right next-door to shops and restaurants (as are most things in Palm Cove). Peppers is also great but is usually more expensive with smaller rooms. The pool at Peppers is fabulous but many of the rooms don't have water views. Ask before you book.

You should be aware that Palm Cove is quite close to Cairns (on the public bus route) and for that reason is more accessible than Port Douglas. This means that you can visit the city for shopping and movies...but with all that beautiful scenery and lots of water-activities...who wants to go to the movies???

The advantage of Port Douglas is that it's closer to beautiful Mossman Gorge, the reef and the Daintree which would be fabulous day-trips for you. These run as tours from both Palm Cove and Port Douglas and many tour operators will pick-up from hotels.
