PHOTO TOURISM QUEENSLAND
The absolutely gay, absolutely beachfront resort hotel
located between Cairns and Port Douglas is offering a
four-night package for women only that includes transfers,
accommodation, daily dinners and breakfast, entertainment
and optional tours during the week.
With the Great Barrier Reef on one side and rainforest on
the other, Turtle Cove with its private, clothing optional beach
has long been regarded as a slice of gay heaven in tropical
North Queensland. And if you can't see yourself swimming
nude, you can always relax in a hammock under the palm trees
with the girl of your dreams!
During your stay at Women's Week you will be able to
meet other friendly lesbians from around the world, or you can
just spend some quality time with your partner. You could get
together a group, or if considering a vacation alone, there are
a small number of single places for women who are willing to
share with others.
While Turtle Cove's naturally beautiful setting encourages
you to do nothing, resort facilities and friendly ser vice will keep
you pleasantly occupied. There is a resort shop, mini gym, guest
lounge, internet booths, billiard room, rental cars on site, 16-
person Jacuzzi, and large free-form swimming pool.
There's also plenty to do out and about, as you are located
in one of the most beautiful places on earth. As part of
Women's Week you can take a gay snorkeling and diving tour
of the Great Barrier Reef which features a fast luxury boat trip
to the reef, morning and afternoon tea, tropical seafood lunch,
snorkeling and a guided reef tour. Scuba diving is optional as
well, and all equipment is provided. This tour begins at
7.45am, so get plenty of rest the night before, and don't forget
The other not to be missed tour is of the ancient
rainforests, which are among the oldest in the world. The
rainforests of tropical North Queensland are World Heritage
FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, TURTLE COVE,
THE EXCLUSIVELY GAY AND LESBIAN

listed due to their stunning beauty and ecological importance.
During the tour you will visit the award-winning Rainforest
Habitat, a sanctuary which protects kangaroos, koalas, native
birds and other wild Australian fauna, enjoy lunch at Daintree
Tea House and hike through private rainforest to a spectacular
swimming hole where you can swim with the fish and
freshwater turtles. For this tour you'll need to be reasonably fit
and wear good walking shoes, but it's a day you will not forget.
Whether you have spent the day exhausting yourself or
doing nothing, one tropical ritual is to watch the sun set while
wearing as little as possible and sipping a wicked tropical
cocktail. The friendly bar staff at either of the two bars will whip
you up a delicious fruity concoction, and you can follow this by
dining in Turtle Cove's sumptuous restaurant which overlooks
the Coral Sea. Dinners, included in the package, feature the
best of local and Australian seasonal produce including seafood,
tablelands fresh vegetables and tropical fruits, with the menu
changing daily and each dinner being themed.
Accommodation is exclusive and private with a choice of
beachfront, king and terrace rooms. All rooms feature queen
or king size beds, air-conditioning, en-suite bathrooms and
private balconies, to ensure you slumber in world-class style.
The beachfront and ocean terrace rooms have stunning views
of the beach and Coral Sea, but all the accommodation is very
pleasantly situated, and should you never want to leave, Turtle
Cove has some recently released units available for sale.
