"Port Douglas is a tropical village just a scenic one-hour drive away from Cairns. The restaurants here are spectacular and the sunrise at Four Mile Beach is absolutely amazing!"

Port Douglas, Tropical North Queensland

The tropical town of Port Douglas, roughly a one-hour drive north from Cairns, has it all: the aquamarine waters of the Great Barrier Reef, the breathtaking canopy of the Daintree Rainforest, the crystal creeks of Mossman Gorge, and the palm-fringed golden sands of Four Mile Beach. It is the only place on Earth where two World Heritage-listed sites – the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest – meet.
