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 Daintree Discovery Centre and Safaris. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Four Mile Beach and Scuba & Snorkeling. Get out of town with these interesting Port Douglas side-trips: Palm Cove (Palm Cove Beach & Spas & Wellness), Cairns (Esplanade Boardwalk, St Monica's Cathedral, & more) and Alexandra Bay Waterfall (in Diwan). Spend the 6th (Mon) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. And it doesn't end there: experience rural life at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, look for all kinds of wild species at Mossman Gorge, look for gifts at With Sugar, and kick back and relax at Trinity Beach.
