Port Douglas, affectionately known as “Port”, is a sophisticated, but laid back seaside village just 67 kilometres north of Cairns International Airport along the Captain Cook Highway. The closest town to the Great Barrier Reef with no traffic lights or parking meters in sight, Port Douglas is the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life whilst still enjoying cosmopolitan convenience and contemporary style in a tropical climate.
Port Douglas is teaming with luxurious accommodation, as well as family friendly apartments and cheerful budget hostels. Famous Four Mile Beach and a globally inspired arrangement of cafés, bars and restaurants host live music performers and serve a variety of casual and five star dining experiences to satisfy even the fussiest of tastes. This is the ideal base to explore surrounding Great Barrier Reef and World Heritage-listed rainforest wonders such as Low Isles, Cape Tribulation and the Daintree.
Our Port Douglas Helicopter Tours are the perfect way to discover this area.
