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.
Relax by the water at Four Mile Beach and Cow Bay Beach. Get outdoors at Opal Reef and Curtain Fig National Park. Get out of town with these interesting Port Douglas side-trips: Cairns (St Monica's Cathedral, Gallo DairyLand, & more), Jaques Coffee Plantation (in Mareeba) and Birdworld Kuranda (in Kuranda). Spend the 26th (Wed) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. Spend the 24th (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's much more to do: take a peaceful walk through Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness, look for gifts at With Sugar, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, and kick back and relax at Palm Cove Beach.
