RE: August Clothing

Daytime should be mid to high twenties celcius with plenty of sunshine. As Anne says, make sure to use sunblock or you'll burn - it's true that the sun is very fierce down here. Have a jacket or something for the cooler evenings.

Travel Tips for Port Douglas

Old buildings

by robertgaz

Port Douglas was established in 1877 after the discovery of gold and it grew very quickly from there. At its peak Port Douglas had a population of 12,000 and 27 hotels.

If you have the time I would recommend hiring a car and driving around the countryside to explore a bit of it's history. There are many abandoned buildings that each have their own story to tell.

reef, rainforest

by HeidiR

To get to the real heart of the rainforest you need to go further north from Port Douglas the Mossman Gorge isreally close. Most of the national parks in Australia are free to visit.

Reef trip 2. Haba from Port Douglas $130 snorkellers, $190 2 dives. Probably the best trip although a little more expensive. Very informative with a guided snorkle and pictures and information. good gear. 2 sites on reef.

Accomodation in Port Douglas is a little more expensive we satyed in the Coconut grove motel ($85) triple room and then dougies youth hostel ($60 double, $21 dorm. Even cheaper is the caravan park next to the youth hostel ($61 for a fixed van which could sleep 5!)

A good place to eat is mango Jams

The picture is the view just before you get to Port Douglas looking towards Cairns. You can go tandem paragliding from this site for $150.

The second picture is the rainforest

Anzac Park

by ettiewyn

Anzac Park was created for the memory of the Port Douglas soldiers killed in World War One. It lies at the very northern tip of the down, directly overlooking the sea, so it is a great lookout.
The park is very nice with its green lawns and palm trees, it is a favourite spot to relax or have a picknick.

The main picture of the into page was also taken here!

Port Douglas

"Port Douglas"

Port Douglas is a major tourist town in Far North Queensland about 70km's north of Cairns. The town is spread along Four Mile Beach with some big resorts along the way the world-class Sheraton Mirage.

Port Douglas is right next to two very well known World Heritage areas, the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest. Numerous companies run daily trips to the outer reef and the Low Isles for scuba diving and snorkelling.

On 4 September 2006 the "Crocodile Hunter", Steve Irwin died at Batt Reef, off Port Douglas, after a stingray barb went through his chest into his heart while filming a documentary called The Ocean's Deadliest.

Port Douglas to Cape Tribulation

by Anne12


This is the first town you will find after you leave Port Douglas.

The trip from Port to Mossman is a lovely 15 minute drive. Beside the roads you have sugar cane feilds with a back drop of mountains and palm trees. You will notice when you enter Mossman the it is a well kept clean village.
Keep an eye out for the Mossman Gorge turn off on your left. Allow at least an hour to walk the rainforest along the river.
Mossman also has a Sugar cane mill. When it is the harvest season you can will notice a sweet smell in the air.
There are tours of the mill daily.

"Daintree River"

Once you arrive at the river crossing you will be asked to pay $12 one way on the car ferry....
It only takes a few minutes to get from one side to the other.
If you are lucky you might see a croc sunning on the banks.

When you cross the river, as you drive along the beautiful road you will see ferns and rainforest shrubs/trees along each side.

You will also see the signs of Resorts along the way, you are welcome to visit these and have a look around, some will serve lunch.

"Along the way"

Along the way there are various areas you can stop and take a look at the scenery. There are also many little cafe that you can stop to have a cuppa.

"Cape Tribulation"

Once you arrive at the Cape Tribulation stop you will see a number of notice boards with interesting stories of the fauna and flora of the area.
You then follow the track to the's a beautiful beach, you can go for a walk and take in the view, or just head straight to the water for a swim.


There is a small walk along the boardwalk. Along the way there are small signs with explanation of different plants.
I would suggest you put some type of insect repellent on as there could be a few mossies that like to bite we humans...:)
