Win a Queensland holiday

Swimming pool at The Reef House in Palm Cove, northern Queensland.

IF you like taking photos at sunrise or sunset, here’s your chance to enter your favourite photo in our summer competition and be in the running to win a luxury holiday, staying at historic The Reef House in Palm Cove, just 25 kilometres north of Cairns in tropical Queensland.

Look through your favourite photos taken at sunrise and sunset since February 1, 2016 – or while on holiday in the coming weeks until January 31, 2017 – and email your sunrise/sunset photos to [email protected].

There is a limit of three entries per person for this competition, which is not open to professional photographers.

Entries for the sunset/sunrise competition will be published online in galleries on in coming weeks, with the finalists announced in February 2017.

The prize for the best entry is two nights’ accommodation at The Reef House, a boutique resort set in a colonial-style complex with 67 rooms and suites. It is situated on the beachfront in the heart of Palm Cove, which has a relaxing seaside village atmosphere.

The Reef House’s central feature is the large swimming pool, framed by shaded pathways and tropical gardens. Enjoy meals and snacks beside the pool.

There are two other pools dotted around the property, surrounded by tropical flora.

The rooms and suites are spacious and come with one or two bedrooms. Some of the verandah rooms have an oversized spa on the verandah, while some of the brigadier rooms include a hanging swing on the porch, perfect to relax and look out at the swaying palms on the beach. The rooms are air-conditioned and also have ceiling fans.

Enjoy a health or beauty treatment at the award-winning Reef House Spa on the premises.

A tradition at The Reef House is for guests to enjoy a complimentary Brigadier’s Punch at twilight at the bar. During the day an honesty bar is in place at the Brigadier Lounge.

The Reef House is part of Accor’s M Gallery collection of memorable hotels.

Palm Cove is ideally located for exploring the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest.
