Port Douglas and Daintree Tours & Activities

 

Great Barrier Reef


For those choosing a watery adventure, Great Barrier Reef tours operate daily with a range of options available including state of the art fast catamarans, sailing yachts, luxury motor yachts, extended live a board trips and reef sprinters. 

Why not combine a Great Barrier Reef experience with a deserted island stop over via sailing yacht or luxury helicopter? Take home the ultimate fishing story from on board a light or heavy tackle fishing charter, or take the family for a relaxing afternoon of esturine fishing along the waterways of Dickson Inlet.

 

Daintree & Cape Tribulation

If you are looking to remain dry, an assortment of land based adventures are also available from your hotel door.  Small or large group tours to the Daintree and Cape Tribulation are a must, with a wildlife cruise on the Daintree River keeping a close eye out for the elusive crocodile the perfect companion tour. 

Discovery abounds north of the Daintree River, with options including sea kayaking, jungle surfing, barramundi and river fishing, a world class discovery centre and the most delicious locally made ice cream ever produced! 

 

Four Mile Beach

Discover the essence of Port Douglas with a morning stroll along the famous golden sands of Four Mile Beach before enjoying the perfect coffee and heading off to the Sunday craft and produce markets for a coconut cocktail. 

 

Indigenous Cultural Experiences

A key experience is the guided one and half hour Dreamtime walk and the three hour Dreamtime Gorge walk in the Mossman Gorge.  All walks are conducted with a traditional owner and the groups are kept to about fifteen visitors at a time.  Visitors are treated to a walk along private, east graded tracks, visiting special places and culturally significant sites, past traditional bark shelters and over meandering cool rainforest streams.

 

Port Douglas Township

Enjoy the history of the area taking a walk through the picturesque St Mary's by the Sea chapel and the old court house, followed by a well deserved drink in one of Port Douglas' historical pubs.  Every evening offers a new sunset view: champagne in the park or high above Port Douglas from the lookout overlooking the Coral Sea and Four Mile Beach, to relaxing with a cocktail on the deck of Marina Mirage.

 

Golf Courses & Tours

And if all this activity is exhausting, you can opt for a quieter day enjoying a round of golf, luxuriant spa treatment and massage, complete with an overindulgent romantic dinner.
