Tropical North Queensland conjures up images of lush rainforest, deserted beaches and unique wildlife, and Port Douglas has all of this and more. Close to the two World Heritage sites of the Daintree Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef, the coastal village is awash with pristine natural wonders. The beach, organic lifestyle of Port Douglas is reflected in all elements, from friendly sidewalk cafes to colourful weekend markets and quirky artisan boutiques.
Take the short 500-metre walk away from the resort and step onto 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 unique wildlife and sprawling canopies. While out north, thrill-seekers can hop aboard a 4WD for an energetic ride around Cape Tribulation.
The Great Barrier Reef is also a sight not to be missed and can be experienced in myriad ways. Take an island day trip, scenic flight or dive tour for 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 cafes, boutiques, restaurants and bars as the night creeps in. At the weekend, shoppers head to Anzac Park for the Sunday markets, where they can pick up fresh produce and colourful flowers.
