Getting to and from Palm Cove 

We highly recommend two local shuttle and transfer service operators to our guests.  Exemplar and Palm Cove Limousine have been servicing  the Cairns, Palm Cove and Port Douglas region for several decades.  


Shuttle Service 


Exemplar offers a seat in coach option with fellow travelers on a per seat basis.  This is a great value option for those solo or couple travelers. It runs to a set schedule and waiting for other passengers might be required on arrival. For departures  

Adult: $25.40 pp One-way 

Child: $12.65 pp One-way 


Private Transfer  

Palm Cove Limousine offers a classic great-value private airport transfer experience.

The driver will meet you at your designated baggage carousel holding a Sanctuary Palm Cove sign. You will then be chauffeured by courteous drivers with extensive knowledge of Cairns and the surrounding areas. For those traveling late at night, a pre-checking experience is available, and the driver will take you directly to your apartment key in hand.

On return, the driver will meet you at the elevator of your apartment at a suggested time based on your flight details and local traffic conditions. 

If you are traveling with an infant or toddler, they have baby seat options available at no extra cost. 

 1-3 People  $90.00 One-way 

 4-7 People $110.00 One-way 


Group Transfer 

For large groups or family gatherings, we recommend Exemplar's fleet of vehicles as a transfer option. They are also great to help move groups around during a stay with us 

8-13 People  $142.50 One-way 

13-20 People $184.50 One-way
