Types of activities for teenagers in Port Douglas

Teenagers and travel! When done right is an everlasting memory for all involved. If not planned can be lets be honest quite painful. 

We aren't trying to put a downer on your trip quite the opposite. Here are are few pages on some insights we collected from actual teenagers visiting Port Douglas.

Engaging and entertaining teenagers can be difficult.  There are a variety of tours on offer around Port Douglas that cater for every type of teenage interest.

If they like exploring nature then you can bring out the Bear Grylls in them and organise a tour through the rainforest with an Aboriginal guide who can describe how they have lived off the land for the last 40,000 years.

If furry animals with big eyes is more their thing then a visit to the Wildlife Habitat can give them plenty of ‘aaaahs’ as they cuddle a koala and hand feed the kangaroos and wallabies. 

For the adrenalin junkies there are plenty of activities to raise their pulse and their voices as they scream with exhilaration.

Ride the rapids as you white water raft down the Tully River; jump, swim, abseil and zipline as you enjoy the thrills of canyoning down the Crystal Cascades; feel your stomach in your mouth as you bungy jump from a 50 metre tower or swing on the world’s fastest Minjin Jungle Swing. Career through the rainforest canopy on seven flying fox ziplines.

You can ride horses, jet skis and explore the rainforest off road 4 x 4 vehicles and off-road motorbikes (experienced riders only).

Of course, if they just want to laze by the pool with their smart phone in hand then all resorts and accommodation have their own pools where they can top up their tans under the tropical sun (factor 50 advised!).

For the more conservative teenagers you might wish to engage their brain in a family fuelled brain scratching in an Escape Room (45 min drive away)- especially good for saving a boring rainy day.
