Port Douglas has evolved from a sleepy fishing village into one of the most sought after holiday destinations in the world. Relaxed lifestyle, spectacular scenery and access to some of Queensland’s most beautiful natural attractions has encouraged discerning growth in this small township.
Four Mile Beach, aptly named for the four miles of clean golden sand, curves around one side of the township whilst Dickson Inlet with its protected harbour and marina nestles on the other.
Still retaining its village atmosphere with wide tree-lined streets, no traffic lights or parking meters, Port Douglas has evolved into a sophisticated yet casual holiday destination. Boutiques, a Sunday market, some of Australia’s finest restaurants and friendly locals add to Port’s unique ambience.
Located an hours drive north of Cairns, along one of Australia’s most scenic coastal routes.
