From Cairns you can do the Kuranda Village/market trip by train, then return by skyrail.
Cairns also has bungy jumping, white water rafting, a new thying to do is visit the man made small lake, just out of Cairns and try some skiing...this isn't on the back of boats, this is sorta done by wires etc....you sorta have to see it...lol
There is also GoCart racing.
Most of these things are a little out of Cairns, hiring a car could be a good idea.
The drive to Port Douglas from Cairns is wonderful...half way you could stop and do a bit of tandem
From Port Douglas you can do the Daintree /Cape Tribulation tour.
Browse the shops...do a cruise out to the reef and snorkle
There is also the Zoo's in the Cairns area and a crocodile farm.
You will be able to get all brochures that you need when you arrive here.
At Port Douglas, the Soul and Pepper Cafe' which is on the inlet is wonderful for breakfast, the Salsa Bar and Grill is fantastic for dinner.
ALso the Yacht Club in Port is good, on Wednesday you can go there ( about 3.30/4) and find the man at the bar that will let you know if you can go out on a Yacht for a sail, this will cost nothing except a couple of drinks for the man that owns and sails the boat.

That is just a few things you can do":)

Travel Tips for Port Douglas

Cane Toad Racing

by sue_stone

If you want to experience some local culture then head to the Iron Bar Grill on Macrossan Street for some Cane Toad racing!

Cane Toads are large ugly toads found in this part of the country, and the outback-themed Iron Bar pub and restaurant holds races throughout the week.

This is a good fun event where you may even be lucky to win a bottle of champers if your toad comes in first!

The Outer Reef and Lowe Isle

by Anne12

A trip to the reef is a must for any visitor to the far North Qld. You can do this from Cairns or Port Douglas. There a number of boats that do this daily. It will depend on what you want and how confidant you are in the water.
Quicksliver trips:- These leave daily from the Marina in Wharf Street. There is the Quicksilver shop and booking area on the Marina. The tickets are $185 per person. What you get for this is morning tea as you set off from Port Douglas, your snorkling gear, tour of the reef in a semi submersible submerine, viewing area of the reef and fish from the Quicksilver pontoon, a buffet lunch of salads/seafood/cold meats and hot dishes plus yummy fresh fruit. Afternoon tea as you head home.
Extras are Helicopter flight/scuba diving/ snorkling reef tours with guide who will explain corals and fish etc.

This particular cruise is excellent for children and those that are confidant in the water. You are on a large pontoon and the area where you snorkling is roped so you can't go too far. There is a yellow rope area that you can hold on too and reat areas where you can stop and get your breath. The area that you snorkle has a life saver watching all the time. If you happen to go too far they will come out and tell you. There is help for people that haven't done this before, they will help put snorkle/flippers etc on.
The day begins at 10am and you are back in Port about 4.30pm. You travel approx 72K's out from Port to the reef.
I love this trip and highly recommend.

There are also smaller cruises that head to the Outer Reef. Some of these are Wavelength/Poseidon/Calypso
All these tours are excellent. They are smaller boats and cater for smaller groups. They have buffet lunch supplied.
They don't actually stop at a Pontton, you go into the water from the end of the boat.
A number of these are booked by the younger people.

What ever you decide I am sure you will have the best time.

Nestled on the edge of the Mossman Gorge in the Daintree Rainforest, Silky Oaks is a luxury lodge. We only went on visited Lunch but The Treehouse is one of Northern Queensland's premier dining experiences

Port Douglas - Escape to Far North Queensland!

by ettiewyn

Port Douglas is a little town north of the much more famous Cairns. I visited Port Douglas for two days while staying in Cairns in 2006, and although the two cities have a lot in common, I did not regret it, as there are also many differences: Port Douglas is much more quiet than Cairns. It is also a tourist town, but much more luxurious and with a different atmosphere, more relaxed and laid back, but also more elegant.

I think Port Douglas is a great alternative to Cairns, but also worth a day trip if you are staying in Cairns and have enough time. All the guided tours go from both cities, so it is mainly a manner of your taste and feeling which of the two you choose as permanent basis for your exploration of Far North Queensland.

Port Douglas itself is dominated by its small harbour, many palm trees and shops, and of course the fantastic Four Mile Beach. But the surroundings are no less beautiful: The Great Barrier Reef, the tropical rainforest, several National Parks, and many more beaches in the south...

"Port Douglas"

Further North than Cairns is the more up market town of Port Douglas. As it is smaller things tend to be more expensive than in Cairns.

For lots more information please see my travelogue under Australia from Reef to Rainforest. There is pictures and info about hotels and resterants there.
