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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Curtain Fig National Park and Michaelmas Cay. Visit Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach for some beach relaxation. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Port Douglas: Cairns (Gallo DairyLand & Atherton Tablelands), Jaques Coffee Plantation (in Mareeba) and Kayaking & Canoeing (in Palm Cove). Spend the 29th (Sat) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. Spend the 27th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. And it doesn't end there: experience rural life at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, head outdoors with Horses in Port, look for all kinds of wild species at Birdworld Kuranda, and meet the residents at Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas.

Expect a daytime high around 33°C in September, and nighttime lows around 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
