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.
You'll get in some beach time at Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Port Douglas: Trinity Beach (in Trinity Beach), Palm Cove (Spas & Wellness & Annie's Ladies Boutique) and Cairns (St Monica's Cathedral, Esplanade Lagoon Pool, & more). Spend the 5th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 6th (Mon) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. Next up on the itinerary: experience rural life at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, look for gifts at With Sugar, kick back and relax at Cape Tribulation Beach, and stroll through Yorkeys Knob Beach.
