Hidden away behind a headland poking out into the Coral Sea, lies one of Tropical North Queensland’s best-kept secrets, Yorkey’s Knob. The laidback tropical atmosphere and feeling of ‘seclusion’ of Yorkey’s Knob is irresistible for those looking to escape, relax and unwind.
The magnificent sweeping deck of the local Yorkey’s Knob Boat Club commands spectacular views of the yachts moored in Half Moon Bay and out to the headland of Trinity Beach. You’ll find the Half Moon Bay Golf Club right by the boat club.
Those looking to wet a line are well catered for with many good fishing spots around the bay, beach and mangroves. Keen anglers can also hire a boat and anchor off the bay for a day of fishing in the open sea.
Yorkey’s Knob is just 15 minutes from the Cairns City Centre, just under an hour to Port Douglas and only 10 minutes to the turn-off to Kuranda and the beautiful Atherton Tablelands.
