A 44 mile spectacular scenic coastal drive north from Cairns, Port Douglas has a distinctive laid back atmosphere, and a low-rise tropical old world charm. An extensive range of accommodation is available for all budgets from 3.5 Star to 5 star resorts, from family holiday apartments to luxury beach side villas, and complemented by a world-class array of restaurants and boutiques

‘Reef And Rainforest Coast’, a spectacular 200 km stretch of Coral Sea coastline, and adjacent World Heritage rainforest areas of Daintree and Cape Tribulation on a guided day tour or 4WD safari. From the magnificent marina explore the Great Barrier Reef with one of the many local fishing (obviously!), diving, snorkeling or reef cruise companies. Port Douglas is the complete tropical experience loved by the likes of John Travolta and Bill Clinton-who incidentally loves to fish in our region-but don’t expect to see him on your Charter Boat!
