Port Douglas

A holiday in Port Douglas balances an activity-filled getaway with plenty of opportunities to relax, thanks to its proximity to the Great Barrier Reef and bustling beach life.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Opal Reef and Sunday Market Port Douglas. Step out of the city life by going to Photography Tours and Scuba & Snorkeling. Change things up with these side-trips from Port Douglas: Daintree Discovery Centre (in Cow Bay) and Daintree Tea (in Daintree). Spend the 16th (Tue) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, do a tasting at Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery, stop by Coffee Works Port Douglas, and don't miss a visit to St Mary’s by The Sea chapel.

To find where to stay, ratings, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Port Douglas trip builder .
