Talk about a love triangle – between the lively cultural city of Cairns, the laidback beachside village of Palm Cove and the trendy boutique town of Port Douglas, you’ll find the holiday with it all. There are endless things to do, with the reef (see #13) and the Daintree at your beck and call, but it’s also the ideal setting to do not much at all – much like this young lass here, reclining as she is at local retreat Thala Beach Lodge. Tough for some. More info: Cairns Tropical North Queensland
