From the Rex Lookout to Port Douglas is 25kms of unrivalled coastal views weaving between the dual World Heritage areas of the Wet Tropics Rainforest and Great Barrier Reef, one of the world’s most iconic natural wonders. Leave the blue of the ocean behind as you pass through the coconut filled fields of Thala Beach towards the expansive sugar cane fields fringing Port Douglas. Oak Beach is a sleepy beachfront haven jotted with luxury beachfront homes and villas, which stretches 1.5km with an inner coral reef at one end. Only 10 minutes from Port Douglas, this beachfront haven is a perfect spot for a secluded stay.
As you journey towards Port Douglas, look towards the sky to catch a glimpse of Ospreys nesting high above or keep your eyes peeled for a crocodile basking
in the sun beside the Mowbray River at low tide.
