Picturesque Port Douglas, the tourist hub of the region, is just 65 kilometres north of Cairns international airport along a spectacular scenic coastal drive. Holidaymakers relish Port Douglas’ natural beauty and excellent year round climate. Its relaxed seaside village ambience blends superbly with the vibrant atmosphere of tropical style and sophistication. It captures visitors by the heart and has made Port Douglas a favourite international destination.
Nestled at the end of a peninsula, the tranquil waters of a natural harbour on one side of the village embrace a lively marina. Along the other side of the peninsula stretches the breathtaking sandy sweep of beautiful Four Mile Beach.
Soak up the sunshine on the beach, stroll among the village shops, galleries, historic buildings and the seaside Sunday market. Play a round of golf, visit a rainforest wildlife centre, relax over sundowner drinks at a boardwalk café, or dine on a delicious tropical dinner at one of the many fine restaurants.
Port Douglas is the closest gateway to the Great Barrier Reef. A natural wonder abundant with incredible biodiversity. Colourful coral gardens of every shape and form, home to an abundant array of tropical marine life. There’s a reef tour to suit every style, making it so easily accessible that everyone can experience this extraordinary underwater world.
The World Heritage rainforests are also within easy reach of Port Douglas. The lush green coastal strip of the Daintree, Cape Tribulation region to the north of Port Douglas is home to some of the oldest forests in the world and is a treasure trove of rare plant and animal species.
