Paradise Palms Resort & Country Club
Situated between two natural wonders, the World Heritage Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef, Paradise Palms Resort & Country Club is a world-class destination just 20 minutes north of Cairns in the heart of Tropical North Queensland.
Cairns, in far north Queensland, is undoubtedly the best jumping-off point for visiting the Great Barrier Reef, a world-heritage listed natural wonder. The Cairns Great Barrier Reef is the #1 tourist attraction in North Queensland. The Great Barrier Reef is the largest coral reef system in the world. It extends for over 2,500 kilometers along the northeast coast of Australia and covers an area the size of Germany. It’s the only living organism visible from space and it attracts over 2 million visitors a year.
The golf course at Paradise Palms, designed by Graham Marsh and Ross Watson and first opened in 1990, is a par 72 and measures 6,592 meters off the championship tees. Its course rating of 76 offers the first clue as to the scale of the challenge that awaits the keen golfer. Constantly ranked as one of Australia’s best and most challenging courses, Paradise Palms offers a combination of sweeping fairways, snaking creeks, six lakes, narrow undulating greens and 94 bunkers. The course is a great test for golfers of all levels.
Paradise Palms Resort & Country Club puts you within a 10-minute drive of Cairns Tropical Zoo and Skyrail Rainforest Cableway. Guests can take a dip in the outdoor pool or grab a bite to eat at 59 Restaurant & Bar, which serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. A bar/lounge and a children's pool are other highlights, and the 96 apartments at this luxurious property offer balconies and deep soaking tubs.
