Port Douglas, Tropical Queensland
Port Douglas is one of my favorite places in Australia.
Everything is so relaxed and the village has a charm all of it's own.
Nestled between the beach and the marina complex, visitors can walk anywhere without the hassle of looking for a parking space or being worried about that extra drink at dinner landing you in trouble.
It's a short drive into the Daintree area. Just 15 minutes to Mossman Gorge and those snorkel and dive cruises to the reefs are awesome. But you don't have to leave Port Douglas itself to have a great holiday.
Just an hours drive north of Cairns, Port Douglas was first settled in 1877, was all but wiped
off the map by a cyclone in 1911 (just 2 houses remained standing) and
eventually became an important tourist area of North Queensland in the

At Port Douglas things are more relaxed and so they
should be, because you are in paradise.
