Port Douglas in Tropical North Queensland is one of Queensland’s premier holiday destinations. Located just north of Cairns, Port Douglas offers a sophisticated and low-key escape for travellers from around the world. Known as a glamorous hotspot for the rich and famous, Port Douglas still manages to retain an unpretentious and relaxed ambience. You’ll only find buildings up to three stories high, not much taller than the nearby palm trees as well as boutique clothing shops, and exquisite alfresco dining restaurants.

A visit to Four Mile Beach is essential, where you can laze away the day on the pristine sand. Enjoy lunch at one of the many cafes scattered along Macrossan Street or spend the afternoon shopping at the Marina Mirage. Port Douglas is also a popular base from which to explore the Great Barrier Reef and the rainforests of the Wet Tropics, Daintree, and Cape Tribulation.
