Port Douglas

Ease of accessibility to the Great Barrier Reef is one of many reasons why this former fishing village is a vacationer’s paradise.

Two of the most unique natural environments in the world, the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest, meet in Port Douglas. A relaxing seaside atmosphere and unparalleled natural beauty make this town a popular destination with visitors from all over the world.

Tropical rainforest, swaying palm trees, a fresh sea breeze and a glorious beach are just a few of the local charms. Other highlights include local and regional art, boutique stores, weekend markets, a tropical zoo and late lunches on pub balconies.

Port Douglas appeals by way of its natural beauty and local culture. You won't find high-rise buildings or beach development here. The town's environmentally active residents have opposed such developments, creating a unique tropical destination. At Island Point Lookout, see the views of Four Mile Beach. Walk along the sand and swim in the Coral Sea. During the summer, the sea is filled with poisonous jellyfish, so wear a protective swimsuit or stay on the beach.

Sail to the Great Barrier Reef from the Marina Mirage. If you’re only in town for a day, head to the Low Isles and see stingrays, turtles and the historic lighthouse. At the edge of the Daintree Rainforest, only a 20-minute drive away, is the beautiful Mossman Gorge. To get there, rent a car or book a tour through one of the agents in town.

On Sunday, head to Anzac Park where you can meet the locals at the Sunday Markets and browse arts, crafts and souvenirs. At the end of the day, watch the sunset over the Port Douglas Sugar Wharf and the Coral Sea.

Port Douglas is a small town and most attractions are within walking distance. Local taxis and buses are available to take you to other major attractions. November through to May is the high season and the hottest time of the year. 

If sunshine, snorkelling, beaches and natural beauty are your idea of a great getaway, then Port Douglas is a top holiday destination.
