Port Douglas

Port Douglas is a picturesque seaside village which embodies an atmosphere of tropical style and sophistication. It is an intimate and relaxed town where food, wine, arts and culture are appreciated.

Refresh, restore and revitalise in the aquamarine waters of the Coral Sea or the crystal creeks of Mossman Gorge. Explore the Daintree Rainforest or relax on the palm-fringed golden sands of Four Mile Beach. The choice is yours.

Pack your sense of adventure and brightest kaftan and enjoy the village atmosphere of Port Douglas in style.

Explore the Great Barrier Reef where there is a tour to suit all capabilities and experience levels. Whether you want to go diving, snorkelling, fishing, or perhaps stay dry on a reef pontoon, everyone can experience this extraordinary underwater world.

Restaurants are many and varied with delicious interpretations of local produce and tastes from around the world.

Max out that credit card at chic boutiques, art galleries and spas dotted along Macrossan Street and throughout the region.

While luxury is definitely a highlight of Port Douglas with magnificent resorts, elegant homes and superb apartments, backpackers and families are equally catered for in this tropical village.

Nestled at the end of a peninsula, the tranquil waters of a natural harbour on one side of the village lead to the Crystalbrook Superyacht Marina. Along the other side of the peninsula stretches the sandy sweep of Four Mile Beach.

From Port Douglas take yourself on a self-drive tour and explore the heart of the Wet Tropics Rainforest at Daintree and Cape Tribulation.

Port Douglas is an hour’s drive north of Cairns Airport, along the spectacularly scenic Great Barrier Reef Drive. Hire a car from the airport, stop along the way at secluded beaches and take a selfie at Rex Lookout.

For a more relaxing option, jump on a coach so you don’t miss out on the view. The coaches meet every flight into the Cairns Airport and will take you directly to your accommodation. If you want to arrive in style, book a limousine or helicopter transfer and set the scene for your luxury Port Douglas holiday.
