Port Douglas

A holiday in Port Douglas balances an activity-filled getaway with plenty of opportunities to relax, thanks to its proximity to the Great Barrier Reef and bustling beach life.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness and Horseback Riding Tours. When in Port Douglas, make a side trip to see Alexandra Bay Waterfall in Diwan, approximately 50 minutes away. There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Opal Reef, stop by With Sugar, view the masterpieces at Ngarru Gallery, and hunt for treasures at Sunday Market Port Douglas.

To find traveler tips, where to stay, ratings, and more tourist information, you can read our Port Douglas trip itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 88°F in February, and nighttime lows around 75°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
