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.
Visit Four Mile Beach and Thornton Beach for some beach relaxation. Get outdoors at Safaris and Myall Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Port Douglas: Cape Tribulation (Cape Tribulation Beach & Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness). Spend the 20th (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's much more to do: admire all the interesting features of Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, look for gifts at With Sugar, and meet the residents at Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas.
