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.
Explore Port Douglas' surroundings by going to Cape Tribulation (Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness, Daintree Entomological museum, & more), Cairns (Scuba & Snorkeling, Esplanade Lagoon Pool, & more) and Alexandra Bay Waterfall (in Diwan). Spend the 15th (Fri) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. There's much more to do: experience rural life at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, head outdoors with Eye to Eye Marine Encounters, kick back and relax at Palm Cove Beach, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Trinity Beach.
