18km north of Cairns
Yorkeys Knob beachfront is really popular with local Cairns residents and tourists alike. And is it any wonder, when you only have a short stroll to the shops, restaurants, 18 hole golf course and popular Marina.
Accommodation is mostly found along the beachfront or on the "Knob" overlooking the Coral Sea.
It's a quaint little seaside community with quiet residential streets, a local shopping centre, an 18 hole golf course and a spectacular marina.
The Half Moon Bay Golf Course is really picturesque. It's overlooking the Coral Sea and to the west you have beautiful views of the Cairns rainforest clad mountain range. Locals love playing here as it's a fun, casual way to spend your day.
After a game of golf, you can head to the clubhouse or move on to the Marina for an meal on the sail covered deck, overlooking all the yachts moored there.
Yorkeys Knob beachfront is fast becoming popular for holiday accommodation as there's no problems with erosion. The beach is wide and doesn't seem to be affected by the cyclonic conditions. It's a lovely spot with a grassy park at the end which haspicnic and bbq facilities.
You'll also see lots of people walking their dogs along the beach as it's dog friendly.
