Welcome to the Great Barrier Reef

Port Douglas Tours & Activities

For those choosing a watery adventure, Great Barrier Reef tours operate daily with a range of options available including state of the art fast catamarans, sailing yachts, luxury motor yachts, extended live a board trips and reef sprinters. 

 

Why not combine a Great Barrier Reef experience with a deserted island stop over via sailing yacht or luxury helicopter? Take home the ultimate fishing story from on board a light or heavy tackle fishing charter, or take the family for a relaxing afternoon of esturine fishing along the waterways of Dickson Inlet.

 

If you are looking to remain dry, an assortment of land based adventures are also available from your hotel door.  Small or large group tours to the Daintree and Cape Tribulation are a must, with a wildlife cruise on the Daintree River keeping a close eye out for the elusive crocodile the perfect companion tour. 

 

Discovery abounds north of the Daintree River, with options including sea kayaking, jungle surfing, barramundi and river fishing, a world class discovery centre and the most delicious locally made ice cream ever produced! 

 

Discover the essence of Port Douglas with a morning stroll along the famous golden sands of Four Mile Beach before enjoying the perfect coffee and heading off to the Sunday craft and produce markets for a coconut cocktail. 

 

Enjoy the history of the area taking a walk through the picturesque St Mary’s by the Sea chapel and the old court house, followed by a well deserved drink in one of Port Douglas’ historical pubs.

 

Every evening offers a new sunset view: champagne in the park or high above Port Douglas from the lookout overlooking the Coral Sea and Four Mile Beach, to relaxing with a cocktail on the deck of Marina Mirage.

 

Wake up to a scrumptious breakfast with the birds followed by an historical ride into town on a sugar cane hauling train before taking that retail therapy opportunity at Meridien Marina and along Macrossan street. 

 

And if all this activity is exhausting, you can opt for a quieter day enjoying a round of golf, luxuriant spa treatment and massage, complete with an overindulgent romantic dinner.

 

With access to Cairns tours and Tableland tours only a short drive along some of the most picturesque drives in North Queensland, Port Douglas is the ultimate centre to base your holiday to experience everything this region has to offer.

Tours in Port Douglas, Mossman and Daintree / Cape Trib

 
If it's action and adventure, romance and relaxation, dining and dancing in a Port Douglas Restaurant & Bars or just serious retail therapy you are looking for, Port Douglas has a little bit of everything and a whole lot of fun packed into its village style atmosphere.

 

Port Douglas tours offer a range of experiences from the iconic classics of the Great Barrier Reef, Daintree Rainforest and Cape Tribulation, to the unique and diverse experience of helicopter air touring, kitesurfing, rainforest dining, jungle surfing and cultural tours.

 

A key experience is the guided one and half hour Dreamtime walk  and the three hour Dreamtime Gorge walk in the Mossman Gorge.  All walks are conducted with a traditional owner and the groups are kept to about fifteen visitors at a time.  Visitors are treated to a walk along private, east graded tracks, visiting special places and culturally significant sites, past traditional bark shelters and over meandering cool rainforest streams.
