Novotel Palm Cove Resort
Coral Coast Dr, Palm Cove QLD 4879, Australia
Family Friendly Fun with a Huge CrocEveryone knows there are crocodiles in these parts, and the biggest, friendliest one can be found at the family friendly pool at the Novotel Palm Cove -- in the form of a waterslide! A relaxed property just a 10-minute walk from the beach, the Novotel caters to families and business travelers alike, though I didn't see many of the business crowd swimming in the lagoon-style pool. Often visited by the shrill curlew birds and the beautiful but noisy cockatoos, the hotel's pool area is the perfect spot to find an innocuous sample of Australian wildlife while soaking up some of that famous sunshine.
