About Yorkeys Knob:
You will always be able to find your own piece of paradise on the large expanse of golden palm-fringed beach. The main patrolled beach offers the protection of stinger nets in the summer season. Swim, sail, wind-surf, snorkel or dive on the Great Barrier Reef, or visit the World Heritage Rain Forests and Cairns City - do it all while staying in YORKEYS KNOB. There are regular city bus services, courtesy tour pick ups, and local car rentals.
Nestled in the cove of Half Moon Bay is the Yorkeys Knob Boating Club serving bistro meals in an open air setting with expansive views of the marina and the ocean from the covered balcony, and a courtesy bus is available. The Half Moon Bay Marina offers 200 sheltered berths for vessels to 30 metres.
Visitors are welcome at one of the most popular golf courses in the Tropical North located at Yorkeys Knob. The picturesque 18 hole Half Moon Bay Golf Club overlooks the Boating Club and Marina providing magnificent views across the Coral Sea.
The beachfront at Yorkeys Knob beach is also a world-class kite-surfing destination (rated one of the top 10 in the world) and the prevailing SE trade winds from April to November makes Yorkeys the focal point of the local and national kite-surfing community.
