GREAT BARRIER REEF
The Great Barrier Reef is the largest living thing on Earth and should be on everyone’s bucket list. The 2,300km-long ecosystem is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and can be explored by scuba diving, snorkelling, helicopter and glass-bottom boat.
A coastal area within Daintree National Park, it offers a combination of rainforest and beaches. Boat tours are available to the Great Barrier Reef, lying to the east. Walking routes include boardwalks and a ridge trail on Mount Sorrow. Bird-watching and jungle zip-lining are popular activities.
FOUR MILE BEACH
Besides the reef and rainforest, Port Douglas is famous for being home to one of Australia’s most iconic beaches. The picturesque and very postcard-worthy Four Mile Beach is lined with palm trees and curves away into the distance as far as the eye can see.
Whether you’re snorkelling around the rocky headlands, grabbing a bite to eat at a nearby restaurant, taking in the spectacular view at Flagstaff Hill Lookout or catching some sun on the golden sand, Four Mile Beach is a must-do for any traveler visiting Port Douglas.
The Daintree Rainforest is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is comprised of over 1,200 square kilometres of luscious tropical rainforest. From Cape Tribulation to Mossman Gorge, the Daintree has so much to offer – zip-line through the dense canopy, explore the magical forest by foot or brave a crocodile tour, if you dare.
A trip to Port Douglas isn’t complete without visiting Kuranda, the “Village in the Rainforest”. This charming town is home to Koala Gardens, Kuranda Markets, the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary, a rainforest cable car and river cruise. However, the Kuranda Scenic Railway is the main attraction, taking passengers on a breath-taking journey through dense rainforest – make sure you bring your camera!
