Port Douglas is one of Queensland's premier holiday destinations. Located one hour north of Cairns, Port Douglas offers a sophisticated and low-key escape for travellers from around the world.
Known as a glamorous hotspot for the famous, Port Douglas still manages to retain an unpretentious and relaxed ambiance: you'll only find buildings up to three stories high, not much taller than the nearby palm trees, boutique clothing shops and exquisite alfresco dining restaurants.
A visit to Four Mile Beach is essential where you can laze away the day on the pristine sand. Enjoy lunch at one of the many cafes scattered along Macrossan Street or spend the afternoon shopping at the Marina Mirage. The Surf-Life Saving Club is located at the northern end of the beach, and during summer, is a great spot to take a refreshing dip in the protected waters in front of the club.
Port Douglas is also a popular base from which to explore the Great Barrier Reef and the rainforests of the Wet Tropics, Daintree and Cape Tribulation. There are numerous tours that embark from Port Douglas, many combining the adventure experiences of the Reef and the Wet Tropics.
Accommodation options in Port Douglas offer a unique insight into the splendour of nature. Enjoy a massage to the sounds of the rainforest or the waves crashing on the beach...in Port Douglas it's all possible.
