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.

Moncton, Canada to Port Douglas is an approximately 33-hour flight. You'll lose 14 hours traveling from Moncton to Port Douglas due to the time zone difference.
