For an unforgettable sunrise, wake up before dawn, grab a coffee from a nearby hotel and wander down the long stretch of beach in Palm Cove. You won't be alone, but the beach isn't crowded at this time of day either. It'll be you, your camera and a few other early risers (or jet-lagged folks!) capturing the airplanes coming in to land at Cairns Airport. Beware of crocs, as they've been known to swim in these coastal waters - but don't let that deter you from experiencing the gorgeous colors of the sun coming up over the sea.
