This location is approximate
Buchans Point is located at the very southern end of Ellis Beach, about 25 km north of Cairns. It is by far the most popular unofficial clothes optional beach in this area and has been recognised as such for many years. It is well suited for this purpose and one must wonder what the real reason was for all the police action in 1988 and 1989. Caution is advised as there has been spasmodic police attention since then.

As you travel north along the Cook Highway look for the car park on the beach side of the road between Palm Cove and Ellis Beach. It is then just a short walk south to the beautiful sandy beach backed by cliffs and the highway. There are plenty of motels and caravan parks nearby.
