From the Daintree Rainforest to the Great Barrier Reef, discover why Port Douglas is ranked Queensland’s NUMBER 1 Aussie Town!
With an enduring allure that attracts sea-changers, holidaymakers and backpackers alike, it’s no surprise that postcard perfect Port Douglas secured the second spot in 2022’s Australian Traveller’s Top 50 Australian Towns Awards.
As voted by readers of the magazine, this little slice of paradise is set on Tropical North Queensland’s coastline, and is creeping its way up the ranks of ‘must visit’ holiday destinations for travellers far and wide.
LOCO FOR LOCATION
Situated between the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest, Port Douglas offers an unparalleled opportunity to experience both World Heritage-listed natural wonders in one trip.
Take a snorkelling or scuba diving trip to the Great Barrier Reef and see the incredible marine life up close, or take a guided tour through the lush Daintree Rainforest and discover centuries-old natural beauty and wonder.
EAT DRINK EXPLORE
Port Douglas’ location isn’t all it has to offer. The village itself is charming, with a laid-back vibe that’s perfect for a little R&R…or adventure, depending on what you’re seeking! Take a stroll down the main street, Macrossan Street, and browse through the boutique shops and art galleries, stop at one of the many cafes or restaurants for a delicious meal, or grab a refreshing drink at one of the local bars.
APPETITE FOR ADVENTURE
If you’re looking for adventure, there are plenty of activities to keep you busy. Take a 2-Day 4WD Cooktown and Daintree Tour, head out on an Epic Reef and Island Tour, go zip lining through the Daintree Rainforest, or Swim with the Salties (yes, crocodiles) on this EPIC adventure.
For those looking for a more low-key activity, there are plenty of options too! From Wildlife Tours to Cultural Experiences where you can discover the Kuku Yalanji people’s environment with a local guide, there’s something for everyone!
One of the best things about Port Douglas is that it’s easy to get to. The town is only an hour’s drive from Cairns, where you can catch a flight from most major Australian cities, and, once you’re in Port Douglas, everything is within walking distance, so you don’t really need a car.
While you’re here, a journey on the Kuranda Scenic Train and Skyrail is a must. Described as a ‘quintessential Queensland day tour’, experience the likes of Kuranda Village, including stops at the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway and iconic Palm Cove, all in one, incredible day out.
