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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Alexandra Bay Waterfall (in Diwan), Palm Cove Beach (in Palm Cove) and Cape Tribulation (Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness, Myall Beach, & more). Spend the 1st (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's lots more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, get great views at Walu Wugirriga Lookout, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, and make a trip to St Mary’s by The Sea chapel.

For more things to do, ratings, photos, and more tourist information, read our Port Douglas trip planner .

In January, daily temperatures in Port Douglas can reach 37°C, while at night they dip to 28°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
