Port Douglas is a coastal town in Far North Queensland and is ideally located for touring the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest. The Daintree Rainforest is a haven of tropical wildlife ready to be explored through a river cruise, hiking, canyoning or ziplining. The Great Barrier Reef has an even larger range of experiences available, from the underwater to the airborne. Port Douglas itself is refreshingly sophisticated, offering upmarket shopping and dining experiences on the edge of idyllic Four Mile Beach. Great views, historical sites and five-star resorts abound.
