Port Douglas

Providing a village feel where the palm trees are taller than the buildings, Port Douglas is a destination with easy access to a couple of Australia’s greatest sites. It is easy to meander about and shop or grab a bite to eat in a nice café within this coastal resort town. Port Douglas is reachable only by road and is about an hour’s drive from Cairns Airport.

Port Douglas is ideally situated for those looking to have quick and easy access to the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest. The Wildlife Habitat is another popular stop with a wide range of flora and fauna and consists of The Rainforest, The Grasslands, and The Wetlands. For views, it would be hard to beat the Kuranda Scenic Railway. One other attraction that may offer competing views would be the hour-and-a-half ride to Kuranda via the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway. Shopping opportunities are readily available and can be easily found on Macrossan Street. Port Village and The Sunday Markets are two shopping centers that can be found within the vicinity. Port Douglas provides the perfect balance by offering the city life while still being within reach of remote wilderness.
