Holloways Beach


Gently swaying coconut palms line the golden sandy foreshore at Holloways Beach. Just 10 minutes’ drive north of Cairns in Far North Queensland, Holloways is one of the first of the city’s famous northern beaches. Its relaxed, tropical vibe makes it the perfect beach to relax with a good book and catch up on some “me” time.

The clean gentle waters of the Coral Sea are protected with stinger nets during the summer months, making Holloways Beach great for swimming and splashing with the kids.

Accommodation ranges from affordable self-contained units to a five star resort right on the beach. Cute cafes, restaurants and beach-side dining offer the best of the area’s fresh local produce. For fine dining North Queensland-style, grab some local prawns and take advantage of the barbecue and picnic facilities located on the grassy esplanade.

Markets are held by the beach on a regular basis and are the perfect place for a leisurely browse as you hunt for that special something.

Holloways Beach is just one hour’s drive to Port Douglas and only 10 minutes from the turn-off to Kuranda and the beautiful Atherton Tablelands to the west. Discover the lush tropical rainforest with a ride on the historic Kuranda Railway or take the Skyrail for a truly unique perspective of this beautiful part of the world.
