Port Douglas Holidays

Situated just one hour from the city of Cairns, the laid-back marina town of Port Douglas is an unexpected gem. Nestled between two UNESCO World Heritage sites, The Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropics, Port Douglas holidays are drenched in natural beauty, with lush green rainforests, colourful reefs and beautiful beaches that stretch for miles. 

The tropical adventures begin on Captain Cook Highway, with the drive from Cairns to Port Douglas offering a scenic coastal route that will undoubtedly take your breath away. As you reach the town you’ll find roads fringed with palm trees leading to a strip of stylish restaurants, bars, cafes, boutiques, bookshops and galleries. At the end of the main street, you’ll see St Mary's, a picturesque chapel that looks out to sea, along with Anzac Park, an idyllic sunset spot for picnics and social gatherings. 

From the rainforest to reef

A Port Douglas holiday would not be complete without a Great Barrier Reef snorkelling and scuba diving cruise, a magical experience that will remain in your heart forever. If you are keen to enjoy a little romance and relaxation, take your pick from a multitude of quiet and secluded tropical beaches in this region, such as Cooya Beach. Adrenaline junkies can spend a morning crocodile-spotting on a Daintree River cruise or venturing off-road into the rainforest and across the beaches of Cape Tribulation in a 4WD. 

With plenty of action-packed days, filled with unforgettable adventures, families will love Port Douglas holidays. A trip to Port Douglas pairs well with a holiday in Cairns, or why not fly to Brisbane and travel to the Sunshine Coast for more incredible scenes of natural beauty and wildlife?
