PLEASE NOTE ...If you are choosing to self drive to Port Douglas from Cairns, please be aware that the road is a twisting coastal road and can be challenging after dark for less experienced drivers, especially in an unfamiliar vehicle. I would recommend timing your flight so you are driving in daylight hours (arriving in Port Douglas before 6.30pm, tropical daylight hours) or catching the shuttle and hiring your car in Port Douglas. During daylight hours the drive is stunning and one of the best there is!!! Please ask me if you need any further details.

The Queensland region

Far north Queensland is known as Tropical North Queensland. Beautiful, lush and sunny. Rolling sugar cane fields and rainforest tucked into the narrow coastal strip between the magical Coral sea and the Great Dividing Range.

Filled with an array of Flora and Fauna, this is one of the most colourful and vibrant natural areas of Australia. Hot and steamy in the Summer months, absolutely beautiful in the winter months. As a famous Queensland saying goes "Beautiful one day, perfect the next!!"

Port Douglas

The biggest attraction in the area is the Great Barrier Reef. You are spoiled for choice, for boats and helicopter rides to see this "wonder of the world". A day-trip to Cairns to ride on the sky rail to the Village of Kuranda and back down by train. Day long walks and birdwatching on the Atherton tablelands. Daintree Village and Cape Tribulation, Canopy surfing or Kite surfing on Fourmile Beach. Evenings out to dinner and theatre at the Karnak playhouse and local Klink theatre.

Art Galleries featuring local and Indigenous art. Food and wine experiences. Adventure/Extreme holiday experiences, Ultralite, bike riding, Hot air balloons, scuba diving. Lots of high quality Day spa experiences. Just taking a walk along Fourmile Beach at sunrise or sunset is a highlight. Feeding the Gropers in the afternoons at "On the inlet Restaurant" while having an afternoon drink. Sunset sailing off the point. These will be a few of your favourite things to do on your holiday...

Das Appartement liegt an einer ziemlich lauten Durchgangsstrasse und ich bin früh morgens aufgewacht, weil ich den Eindruck hatte, die Autos fahren durch mein Bett. Die Lage zwischen zwei Parkplätze… More

I am very sorry that you have obviously booked the wrong apartment for your needs. You are the first to have such impressions. I am very happy that you managed to successfully find somewhere more suitable to your tastes, elsewhere. You are being a little mischievous and misleading in your review... in your description of the outside area, and... in my opinion, overstating the "Traffic" in this small quiet tourist village. I will leave that to my future guests to judge for themselves, as my previous guests and reviewers have done. I wish you happy travels in the future, if that is at all possible.
