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.
Escape the urban bustle at Opal Reef and Michaelmas Cay. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Sunday Market Port Douglas and Birdworld Kuranda. Venture out of the city with trips to Alexandra Bay Waterfall (in Diwan), Palm Cove (Palm Cove Beach & Spas & Wellness) and Cairns (Gallo DairyLand & Atherton Tablelands). Spend the 28th (Fri) exploring nature at Curtain Fig National Park. Spend the 24th (Mon) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. Next up on the itinerary: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, meet the residents at Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, kick back and relax at Four Mile Beach, and get great views at Rex Lookout.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In December, daily temperatures in Port Douglas can reach 36°C, while at night they dip to 26°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 29th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
