Double Island

Updated: 03-Mar-2014

Double Island has a recent history as the domain of the rich and famous with stars booking the entire island for $25,000/night...

This private tropical island has now opened its door to the general public and offers 5 exclusive Two Bedroom luxury fully-equipped villas perfect for the self catering holiday market.

In the 1890s the island was used as a resort for employees of a gold mining company and some local graziers started using the island to graze cattle.

120 years later the island is still a resort however the facilities provided to guests include:

  • 25 metre resort pool
  • Outdoor spa
  • Library
  • Internet access
  • Indoor cinema with 52-inch plasma screen and surround sound system
  • Outdoor cinema located adjacent to the beach
  • Games room (including pool and table tennis tables and computer games)
  • Beachside gymnasium
  • Two Hobie catamarans
  • Sea kayaks and Paddle Ski's
  • Scheduled launch transfers to and from Palm Cove each day

At last we can all explore this fabulous island only 1.5 km north east of Palm Cove on the Tropical North Queensland coast.

Staying at Double Island Villas is the perfect alternative to larger, more commercial resorts and is also available for rental on a 'whole-of-island' basis if you hire all 5 Two bedroom Villas for a special occasion. It is the perfect escape where you could be a million miles from home but only a 10 minute boat ride from Palm Cove where you can pick up provisions or enjoy a gourmet meal by the beach.

Courtesy transfers are included to and from Palm Cove jetty where guests have access to the many gourmet restaurants and guests also have access to tour departures to the areas of Natural beauty in the region. From Cairns airport it will take only 30 minutes to drive to Palm Cove jetty.

The cute little island to the right is actually Haycock Island however it is known locally as 'Scout Hat' as it resembles a scout hat at low-tide.

Palm Cove is our Number One Spa destination here in Tropical North Queensland with a broad range of café's and restaurants and a beautiful beach. Lined with Palm Trees and with views out to Double Island Palm Cove is a popular holiday destination offering warm tropical water year round and a well protected sandy beach.

Double Island - the ultimate destination for your perfect holiday where everyone is welcome!
