I walked along the coast from Palm Cove to Clifton Beach, it was a ‘stunningness’ walk. The mesmerising coastline, fine sand, captivating Aussie men (I started to believe that lots of Aussie men possess the Thor genes)… Amazing view all around lol. One way walk was 2.8km. Stunningness!! (free to do) 2 beaches and a stroll all in one 😀
Theoretically, there’s a recommended set path, with some paths through the palm trees and other good stuff. I was real rubbish at reading maps or staying on a path. No matter, I have developed a fool proof way of getting from Palm Cove to Clifton beach… keep the ocean on the left hand side. That’s it, anyone can find Clifton beach using this method. 😁
It was not my first day in Cairns any more. I’ve now learnt that there’s salt water croc, snakes and several other poisonous residence in the area. Instead of being ignorantly happy, I was just plain nervous. Too nervous? Each time when something rustles in the bush I jumped.
Just for laughs. Below is the comparison of my overly vivid imagination and reality.
So, the road was really not that wild. It was just me being scared endless. I mean, why did the Aussie government put these croc warning signs everywhere?!?!?!?
It was such a beautiful serene walk. I recommend this to anyone who’s visiting Palm Cove / Clifton beach 😀
This walk can be completed without any shoes. However, if your feet are sensitive to heat or not loving the sand, flip flops will be suffice too.
Wear your swimsuit and bring a towel 😉 swim in 2 beaches in one day 😀
Where was I?
Palm Cove Beach & Clifton Beach of Cairns, Queensland, Australia
I saw the signs calling the place “Marlin Coast”. Discovered this freebie walk by myself 😀
North beach / Australia does have an official tourism board / organisation. Below are the links. They have awesome high quality photos.
