From glamorous Four Mile Beach to the wilderness of Dickson Inlet, picturesque Port Douglas has become an international holiday mecca – just 70 kilometres north of Cairns.
Development is low-rise, low-key and relaxing. It is regarded as the most popular base from which to explore the northern areas of the reef and rainforest coast of Daintree and Cape Tribulation.
Despite its popularity and sophisticated five star accommodation, it retains a close community atmosphere. Sharing the same tropical latitude as Tahiti, Port Douglas still attracts visitors for its old fashioned charm, wide streets shaded by trees and superb holiday attractions. There are more than 100 day tour options which depart Port Douglas daily.
Only a fifteen minute drive north is the town of Mossman and the Mossman Gorge. Mossman Gorge gives you the chance to relax in the cool clear waters or take the dedicated walking track through the Wet Tropics Rainforest.
