Welcome to the Great Barrier Reef

Cairns Airport Transfers


Three bus transfer companies operate on a daily basis and can be ready and waiting for you when your plane arrives. The companies are Sun Palm Group, Exemplar Coaches and Limousines, and Coral Reef Coaches.


Bookings can be made in advance either directly with your preferred company, or if you have arranged accommodation in Port Douglas, your accommodation provider can pre-arrange your transfer for you.

Transfers from Cairns Airport to Port Douglas will see you and your togs (swimming costume for our overseas guests) arrive safely at your resort. And your transfer from Port Douglas to Cairns Airport will ensure you arrive in plenty of time to catch your flight.

Major car hire companies including Budget, Avis, and Thrifty also operate out of Cairns Airport and can often be a handy option if you plan to travel to Port Douglas or the Daintree region. The same car hire companies also have depots in Port Douglas allowing easy drop-offs and collections for your return journey.

Regardless of which option you choose to make your way from Cairns Airport to Port Douglas you're in for a treat. The hour-long drive from Cairns to Port Douglas is one of the most picturesque coastal roads in Australia. But take care, the dramatic views of rainforest covered mountains meeting the huge expanse of the Coral Sea can be distracting, so if you're driving take it slowly and simply enjoy.
