There honestly is no place like Queensland, and Port Douglas has got to be one the state’s most prized possessions. The summer doesn’t end here; regardless of the time of year, you can expect glorious weather. One of the things that makes Port Douglas so special is its title as the only place on Earth home to two World Heritage listed sites; the Great Barrier Reef and the rainforest of Daintree and Cape Tribulation.
Just one hour above Cairns, Port Douglas is very accessible and has recently developed beyond a lazy holiday town into a stand out destination for conferences and events. With the award-winning Cairns Convention Centre only an hour away, as well as a multitude of five-star hotels with purpose built event facilities, beachfront resorts and spectacular outdoor locations Port Douglas is a truly appealing and versatile location.
Port Douglas offers a myriad of things to do! From thrilling crocodile and wildlife encounters to helicopter rides over the magnificent Daintree Rainforest and Great Barrier Reef. But if you’d rather keep your feet on the ground, there are so many activities to choose from. Take a walk or safari through the rainforest, head out on a glass-bottom boat, go diving amongst the sea-life, or jump on the back of a Harley and take in the sites from the road!
The year round temperate climate makes Port Douglas the ideal location for both business and leisure in the outdoors. There are countless venues offering alfresco settings and numerous team-building activities in a variety of landscapes. Once the work is done, take your pick from the fresh waters of Mossman Gorge, to the gentle crystal waves of the Coral Sea!
