Where Sea, Sun & Surf Come Together

The picturesque seaside village of Port Douglas is located in the northern region of Queensland, Australia, and is set alongside the spectacular Four Mile Beach. It’s also one of the closest gateways to the Great Barrier Reef, where you can snorkel, dive, fish, sail, and swim in some of the most beautiful and ecologically rich waters in the world.

Also within easy reach of Port Douglas is the World Heritage-listed Daintree Rainforest and Cape Tribulation—home to “some of the oldest forests in the world and is a treasure trove of rare plant and animal species”. The region is also home to the Kuku Yalanji Aboriginal people, and there are many opportunities to experience their culture, from aboriginal art galleries and lessons to indigenous tours in the rainforest.

Within Port Douglas’ center, Macrossan Street is the place to visit for local shops, galleries, and historic buildings, while at the end of the peninsula, there’s the lively Port Douglas Marina.
