Port of Call - Yorkeys Knob

Known as the northern beach of Cairns, Yorkeys Knob is a truly magical example of Mother Nature.

This vibrant community offers safe swimming beaches, fantastic restaurants, great shopping facilities and a world-class marina. Sink a round or two at the 18-hole golf course or simply spend a day lazing by the calm, crystal clear waters of the beach.

The Knob itself is the first headland north of the Harbour of Cairns. It forms a calm bay on its northern side, and a great surfing spot to the south. Both are ideal destinations for discovering what the Queensland coast is all about.
