The area and getting around

The most incredible natural beauty spots

The town is situated next to the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest, two of the most beautiful heritages in Queensland and the world! Explore the rainforest from the northern entry point at Mossman Gorge, a 56,000 hectare area within the Daintree National Park. The place is rich in indigenous culture, so you can visit the Kuku Yalanji people and soak in the freshwater wells as you hike through the rainforest. Alternatively, you can also discover the underwater wonderland of the Great Barrier Reef with excursions departing from Port Douglas. The reef offers shallow grounds and a myriad of colourful coral gardens teeming with turtles and scurrying fish.

Port Douglas' most popular trail

The Flagstaff Hill walking trail is the only one in the township. The trail circles the Port Douglas peninsula and starts from Four Mile Beach in the north to Flagstaff Hill at the top of Island Point Road. To start, head to the southern end of the beach and walk about 1.5km to the Flagstaff Hill trailhead and then to the lookout point. Once you climb the stairs you will have the best views of the beach and the Coral Sea. On the way back, after a sweaty walk, cool off with a mango smoothie at OTZ Café and enjoy the turquoise waters and white sands that line the beach.
