A holiday in Port Douglas balances an activity-filled getaway with plenty of opportunities to relax, thanks to its proximity to the Great Barrier Reef and bustling beach life.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Lady Douglas River Cruise as well as Reef Sprinter. Shop till you drop at Sunday Market Port Douglas and Mossman Saturday Market. Step out of the city life by going to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Agincourt Reef. Change things up with these side-trips from Port Douglas: Palm Cove (Village Gallery & Palm Cove Beach), Emu Ridge Gallery (in Kuranda) and Mareeba Heritage Museum and Visitor Information Centre (in Mareeba). There's still lots to do: stroll through Four Mile Beach, learn about winemaking at Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery, take some stellar pictures from Flagstaff Hill Lookout, and take an in-depth tour of Port Douglas Court House Museum.
