The Area: Port Douglas, QLD
Close to the two World Heritage sites of the Daintree Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef, the coastal village of Port Douglas is awash with pristine natural wonders. The beachy, organic lifestyle of Port Douglas is reflected in all elements, from its relaxed sidewalk cafés to the colourful weekend markets and unique artisan boutiques.
Wander down to Four Mile Beach, where people can stroll, swim or surf to their heart’s content. Those eager for some natural green settings head up the coast to the World Heritage-listed Daintree Rainforest. As the oldest of its kind in the world, the forest is home to a unique array of wildlife and sprawling canopies. Thrill seekers head north and set out on an off-road 4WD adventure around Cape Tribulation.
The Great Barrier Reef is another nearby sight, and one not to be missed. Take an island day trip, scenic flight or dive tour and get a new appreciation for this natural wonder. Back in Port Douglas, folks continue their vacation with a wander around the Esplanade and Macrossan Street, stopping by cafés, boutiques, restaurants and even bars as the night creeps in. On the weekend shoppers head to Anzac Park for the Sunday markets, where they can pick up fresh produce and colourful flowers.
