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.
Get outdoors at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Scuba & Snorkeling. Change things up with these side-trips from Port Douglas: Palm Cove Beach (in Palm Cove), Esplanade Boardwalk (in Cairns) and Trinity Beach (in Trinity Beach). Spend the 9th (Tue) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Four Mile Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, and get a new perspective on things with Shaolin Junk Cruises.
