Prices (Rates) and Time Frames

Port Douglas and Far North Queensland have two main seasons: High (dry) season and Low (Wet) season. Both are beautiful in their own right and offer different positive and negatives and they also dictate the pricing and availability of accommodation. While we do recommend always booking in advance to avoid disappointment, it is easier to book last minute during the low season months whereas over the high season, there is very limited last minute availability. 

Peak (High Season) 21 Jun - 31 Oct Prior bookings required
Off Peak (Low Season) 1 Nov - 20 Jun Prior bookings highly recommended
