Your guide to Port Douglas

All About Port Douglas

The laid-back Port Douglas on the far northeastern coast of Queensland is a gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest. This tropical Australian town boasts balmy weather, superb dining, and easy access to some of the country’s most renowned natural features.

Spend the day sailing or snorkeling the world’s most impressive coral reef system, or winding your way through Mossman Gorge and the oldest surviving tropical rainforest. Swim in the calm waters of Four Mile Beach or simply take some time out to relax at one of the town’s many wellness spas. In the evening, you can wander down to the grassy area at Port Douglas’s shorefront to watch the sunset over the Coral Sea or enjoy the day’s catch at one of the town’s fine-dining restaurants.

The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Port Douglas

Port Douglas has a tropical climate, which means it has two distinct seasons: wet and dry. It also has warm temperatures year round. The wet season runs from November until April, and brings humid weather and significant amounts of rain, especially in the morning and evening. The dry season runs from May until October and brings warmer weather. This is generally the best time for exploring the outdoors and enjoying Port Douglas’s renowned outdoor dining.

If you’re planning on swimming at the region’s beaches or visiting the Great Barrier Reef, be aware that the wet season can also bring box jellyfish to the waters off Far North Queensland. When booking Port Douglas house rentals at this time of year, be sure to seek advice from local experts before taking a dip.

Top things to do in Port Douglas

The Great Barrier Reef

The world’s largest coral reef, the Great Barrier Reef, supports incredibly diverse marine life and has more than 3,000 coral cays and reef systems. There are all kinds of ways to discover the Great Barrier Reef from Port Douglas. You can snorkel off the beach at the Low Isles just offshore or sail to the outer sections of the reef. If you prefer to stay on dry land, take a sightseeing road trip along the Great Barrier Reef Drive, which runs for 87 miles along the coast from Palm Cove to Cape Tribulation.

Daintree Rainforest

The World Heritage-listed Daintree Rainforest is the oldest rainforest in the world, and one of Australia’s most spectacular and diverse natural destinations. It’s home to soaring waterfalls, mountain ranges, lagoons, and dramatic gorges. Cruise down winding rivers, past countless species of birds as well as crocodiles in their natural habitat, and learn about the history of this unique part of the world from its traditional custodians, the Kuku Yalanji people.

Port Douglas Markets

This market is held every Sunday morning on the Port Douglas waterfront in a grassy park framed by palm trees. The market is a popular meeting spot where you can pick up interesting locally made wares, including colorful arts and crafts, handcrafted jewelry, and clothes, as well as delicious street food and local produce.
