Port Douglas

Port Douglas is just an hour’s drive from Cairns via a spectacular coastal road that is surrounded by forest and the Coral Sea. It is a place where glittering green merges into blue, and the only place on Earth where two World heritage listed jewels exist – the Great Barrier Reef and the rainforest of Daintree and Cape Tribulation.

Fun Fact: "Port" as it's called, attracts nature loving vacationers as well as scores of the rich and famous.

The area's grandest attraction, the Great Barrier Reef, lies just eight miles off the coast, and dozens of daily cruises embark from the marina taking folks to snorkel amid its beauty. On shore, Four Mile Beach is a gorgeous swath of uninterrupted sand and sea and the town's most prominent beach. Other attractions include Macrossan Street, the village's main thoroughfare of restaurants and shopping, and the Sunday Markets, a delightful mainstay in Anzac Park. A bit inland, the town of Mossman, famous for its sugar-cane production and beautiful surroundings, is worth an excursion, as is the Daintree Rainforest, which showcases the area's diverse flora and fauna.

Best of all, Port cherishes its small town, seaside charm while simultaneously offering incredible weather, terrific accommodations, and impressive dining. Enjoy this laid back tropical oasis with sophisticated worldly comforts and friendly village atmosphere.
