Port Douglas/Palm Cove

Our first trip down under. One week in motor home in WA, one week in Sydney/Blue Mountains. One week in Queensland. Like the sound of Port Douglas or Palm Cove. Two children aged 10 & 12. Luxury & peaceful two bedroom apartment appeals. Any suggestions anyone? Would really appreciate help.

I'd definately look at Mandalay Shalimar in Port Douglas.

Luxury, peaceful and accross from the beach,and not too far to walk into town if you need to.

Hi - if you were to go for Palm Cove, Breakfree Amphora Resort has 2 bedroom apartments and isn't overly expensive, but is only about 2yrs old so is quite new and modern. Location is great as it's on the quieter end of the Esplanade but such a short stroll to all the restaurants and right across from the beach etc. Have fun!

Palm Cove is beautiful - very peaceful. There are several places which offer luxury 2 bedroom apartments try Outrigger Beachclub or the Sea Temple which have great pool areas although are the top end of the prices there. Depends on the time of year how 'peaceful' the resorts will be. Oasis also offers good size apartments although not on the main Esplanade.
