Help identify palm tree

I was just in Australia for my honeymoon in Tropical North Queensland about 16� south of the equator. Beautiful coconuts, bottles, adondia and about every other ultra tropical palm you can imagine there!

One palm I found that I really liked was this one pictured. It looks to be perhaps of the Alexandrea family? Maybe a king? Maybe not.

Either way, anyone know the exact name?
