One of Sydney’s hottest DJs, Dan Murphy, is heading to Turtle Cove for a special party in the moonlight.

The Full Moon Party, on Saturday, September 10, will see Murphy spin tracks under the stars at the tropical LGBTI paradise, while guests get

to dance the night away on the soft, warm sand.

The night kicks off with a 6.30pm barbeque before Murphy will hit the decks and pump all the hottest hits, gay anthems and whatever it takes to get the party cranking until 2am.

In addition there’ll be drink specials – thanks to 42 Below Vodka – to ensure a great time will be had by all.

Even better, a free weekend of accommodation will be awarded to the best dancer, as judged by the resort’s hot bar staff.

For more than a decade Turtle Cove has been one of the more popular recovery zones, so much so that the resort — which is a 40-minute drive north of Cairns — puts together a week of recovery events to cater for the vast numbers of people seeking to wash off the glitter in the surf.

“Turtle Cove attracts people to the recovery party because of its beachfront location, spectacular weather and friendly atmosphere,” resort marketing manager Jacob Banks said.

“You can either continue to party on or just laze by the pool, relax and recharge your batteries, the choice is yours.”

Turtle Cove is ideally located for those wanting a tropical north Queensland experience. It is close to Cairns, the Daintree rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef.

“We always recommend our guests visit the Great Barrier Reef as it is one of the best snorkelling and diving locations in the world,” Banks said.

“We also recommend the incredible tropical Daintree rainforest. Both of these areas are World Heritage-listed locations and must be seen to be believed.

“The entire tropical far north Queensland is teeming with fabulous things to see and do, like massive waterfalls, barramundi fishing and visiting a crocodile farm.”

So, if you are heading up north for the Full Moon Party, why not extend your stay and do a little adventuring?
