Kuranda ~ Mossman Gorge ~ The Daintree ~ Atherton Tablelands ~The Low Isles ~ Port Douglas
Welcome to your tropical getaway! Port Douglas is equal parts rejuvenating and relaxing, from walks along dreamy Four Mile Beach to snorkelling off the low Isles, to fresh seafood dining at the marina to visiting Port Douglas’s famous markets, we’ve got you covered with this girls only glorious getaway.
The peninsula of Port Douglas was the traditional home of the Yirrganydji people until European settlement turned it into a remote port and fishing village. Port Douglas really developed in the 1980s, thanks largely to the late entrepreneur Christopher Skase, becoming a sophisticated and upmarket resort town that’s quite a contrast to Cairns’ tourist scene. Port Douglas is well connected: the Low Isles is 1.5 hours offshore, the Mossman Gorge is just 30 minutes away and its an hour from Cairns airport which has one of the most scenic drives in the world!
A growing number of flashpackers, cashed-up couples and fiscally flush families choose Port Douglas over Cairns as their Far North base, and for good reason. We will have the opportunity to soak in the beauty of this little town as we are staying right in the centre of it all, just a few minutes walk to the main street. Time is set aside for you to wander the shops, book a massage or enjoy a yoga class. This is ultimate tropical escape.
