Port Douglas

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.
Get in touch with nature at Opal Reef and Four Mile Beach. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Photography Tours and Spas. Venture out of the city with trips to Birdworld Kuranda (in Kuranda), Tranquility Falls (in Daintree) and Cape Tribulation (Daintree National Park & Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness). Spend the 16th (Sun) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. Spend the 14th (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, stop by With Sugar, and make a trip to St Mary’s by The Sea chapel.
