Port Douglas – A Paradise of Adventure 


The world’s most beautiful sights can be found in the far north regions of Queensland. If your idea is to visit the Great Barrier Reef, you can take a Port Douglas airport shuttle to the beautiful small seaside town. The best views of the rivers, reef and rainforest that surround Port Douglas will be enjoyed to the fullest when you take an airport shuttle instead of travelling by boat.

Port Douglas often serves as the base for tourists who want to visit the Great Barrier Reef. However, it is not only the Great Barrier Reef that attracts visitors to Port Douglas; there are rivers, reefs and rainforest that literally make the place a paradise for adventure. If you are a lover of adventure, you certainly must not miss kite surfing or stand-up paddle boarding that is offered by the locals.

Port Douglas also provides visitors with a rare experience of being up-close to some of Australia’s cutest animals. Visitors can take their breakfast and lunch amongst native birds at the Wildlife Habitat. Your best Instagrammable photographs can include koalas, snakes and crocodiles or a cassowary.

You can have your pick among the luxurious hotels and resorts in Port Douglas. If you prefer luxury self-contained accommodation, your best option is Niramaya Villas & Spa. The Sheraton Grande Mirage Resort has two lagoon pools and 7 villa pools while the Pullman Port Douglas has a 3,000sqm lagoon-style swimming pool.

Aside from tourists, many locals visit Port Douglas because of its tropical climate. The waters are fortunately warm enough and gentle to allow swimming all year round even during winter.  The town’s main beach, Four Mile Beach stretches as far as the eyes can see with stinger nets to protect swimmers.

One of the best things that visitors must not miss is the outdoor dining and cultural experience at Flames of the Forest. Down a hidden path, you will find Nautilus Restaurant with a tropical garden setting. Modern Australian cuisine influenced by European and Asian foods is served. Another option is the 2 Fish Restaurant, a multi-awarded seafood restaurant and the On the Inlet which has been the local favorite for the past 20 years.
