A hot spot for getting married.
St Mary's by the Sea is a lovely small white chapel located at the seaside near Dixie Street. According to the driver of my hostel, the chapel is very popular with 'to-be-married'-couples and you need to queue for at least 1 year if you wanna get married with your darling there.
Trips to Cape Tribulation/Mossman Gorge/Daintree
There are a number tours you can do for these areas.
Along the main street of Port Douglas there are outlets that will book tours for you. There is also the Information Centre.
Before you decide to do a tour, think of the cost and then check out the car hire places. It might be less expensive to hire a car and do it yourself at your leisure.
I will be adding more info to my Mossman page and also Cape Trib page.
If you hire a car you can go as far as Capre Trib, then after this you need a 4x4.
Please don't go any further as it is dangerous and not worth the insurance bill.
