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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Cape Trib Exotic Fruit Farm and Shaolin Junk Cruises. Visit Myall Beach and Thornton Beach for some beach relaxation. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Port Douglas: Cairns (Gallo DairyLand, Atherton Tablelands, & more), Birdworld Kuranda (in Kuranda) and Mareeba (Granite Gorge Nature Park & Jaques Coffee Plantation). Spend the 10th (Tue) exploring nature at Mowbray National Park. Spend a day outdoors on the 5th (Thu) with Bike Shop & Hire. And it doesn't end there: take a peaceful walk through Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness, paddle through the water with a kayaking and canoeing tour, relax in the rural setting at Cape Trib Farm, and explore the gorgeous colors at Opal Reef.

Expect a daytime high around 30°C in July, and nighttime lows around 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
