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.
Take a break from the city and head to Safaris and Scuba & Snorkeling. Change things up with these side-trips from Port Douglas: Trinity Beach (in Trinity Beach), Palm Cove Beach (in Palm Cove) and Cairns (Esplanade Boardwalk, Esplanade Lagoon Pool, & more). Spend the 24th (Tue) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. Next up on the itinerary: relax in the rural setting at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, tour the water at your own pace with Shaolin Junk Cruises, look for gifts at With Sugar, and do a tasting at Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery.
