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 out of town with these interesting Port Douglas side-trips: Palm Cove (Village Gallery, Palm Cove Beach, & more) and Cape Tribulation (Cape Trib Farm, Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness, & more). Spend the 17th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 19th (Sat) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. There's much more to do: experience rural life at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, head outdoors with Horses in Port, make a trip to St Mary’s by The Sea chapel, and explore the gorgeous colors at Agincourt Reef.
