Port Douglas (Australia) Reviews
Newest Review: ... and above during our stay in August and had no rain. Port Douglas has a beautiful beach that stretches for 4 miles. The world famous 4 mile beach has a life guard patrolled area for safe swimming. There are few facilities on the beach but there is a small van where you can hire water toys such as body boards and sea kayaks to enjoy in the surf. There are toilets located at the entrance to the beach where you can take a shower and change. The beach is really beautiful, backed by tropical plants and coconut trees. We really enjoyed riding bikes along the firm sand. The sea temperature during our winter visit was around 24 degrees. During... more

Port Douglas was first discovered in 1877 after the discovery of gold and quickly became known as a mining town. Today, the town has become a lucrative tourist ... Read the complete review

Some 60 minutes drive North of Cairns in Queensland is what the Rough Guide to Australia terms a "quaint upmarket tourist attraction". It certainly is a pleasant town. The main road into town is lined by more than two thousand palm trees that were specially imported.

The Radisson Treetops is one example where there are several accommodation blocks in amongst the trees and palms, giving it a feel of the tropical rainforest. The town itself has been built up around tourism. The main street is very attractive and contains mainly restaurants and ... Read the complete review
