Located an easy 100m walk to Palm Cove beach and esplanade with cafes,restaurants, shopping. Palm Cove is Cairns #1 tourist beach, and is half way between Cairns and Port Douglas. Come and enjoy this 5 star location for the best price in Palm Cove. Cairns Beaches Flashpackers opened in September 2015 and is the only hostel between Cairns and Port Douglas. We just received A guest review award from Booking.com for 2016 9.3 out of 10.

I have nothing but good things to say about Flashpackers Palm Cove. This small backpackers is suitable for singles, couples, families and groups of friends. The location is perfect. It is across the road from the Palm Cove Tavern and next door to The Spa, Palm Cove. It is also only 100 metres from the beach and from Williams Esplanade where you have your choice of dining and shopping. As a solo traveller I felt very welcome and the proprietor is flexible on check in and check out times. If you wish to go into Cairns itself the bus runs right past. I thought reasonably priced accommodation in Palm Cove was an impossibilty until I found this place.

This was just an amazing place to stay at. I stayed there for 2 months as a backpacker to work and to enjoy the beautiful setting of North Queensland. It’s perfect if you don’t have a car because it’s such a small place to begin with and everything is in walking distance. People in the area are really nice and it’s quite easy to find a job if your passionate about it yourself. You can make decent money there since the restaurants don’t hire as many people and it’s not that much of a change as it is in bigger cities. You have more luck with good hours in Palm Cove then you do in Cairns in my opinion. The hostel itself was super clean, you had everything there, the owners Wayne and Al are super nice people. We got so many recommendations for good locations for day trips, waterfalls, rainforest, crocodile farms, lookout points, beaches —he got you. If you like rather working in a smaller area to get to know people more or to explore specific area in North Queensland, chill at the beach (2min walk) Palm Cove is the place to be. It’s literally a smaller version of Port Douglas with one street. Absolutely amazing! Thank you Wayne and thank you Al, I already miss you guys! Nothing but good vibes there, except the damn leaf blower in the morning hahaha. Definitely would do it again and definitely recommend going there!

Stayed here for one night after a late arrival into cairns. Flash-packers is less than 5 minutes walk away from the lovely beach. Wayne was very friendly and helpful, providing information and tips about the area. A good start to our trip to Queensland!

Came for a friends wedding, and I found Flashpackers to be ideally located in the town and to the wedding venue. Enjoyed my time here immensely, really impressed with Wayne the manager who made it easy for me to achieve a late night entry. A can do attitude and a few “no worries mate” is a great way to be in my opinion. Cheers Wayne. The establishment was in tip top shape, very clean. Nice vibe from the people staying there. Just keep an eye out for Allen the maintenance guy, he’s a talker haha But all said and done would recommend Flaspackers highly in Palm Cove.
