Port Douglas activities
Port Douglas is 70km north (approx 1 hour drive) north of Cairns Airport, along a spectacular scenic drive called the Great Barrier Reef Drive. Hire a car from the airport and stop along the way at secluded beaches and a photo at Rex Lookout, all you need to do is turn right onto the Captain Cook Highway from the airport and then right at Port Douglas. Easy! For an even easier option, jump on a coach transfer so you don’t miss out on the view (our tip is to sit on the right hand side of the bus for the best view!). The coaches meet every flight into the airport and will take you directly to your accommodation. If you want to arrive in style, book a limousine or heli transfer and set the scene for your luxury Port Douglas holiday.
