Cairns to Port Douglas Scenic Drive - Cook Highway
The scenic drive to Port Douglas is an experience in itself, winding along the coastline, you will get an appreciation of the diverse environments here in the North.
Located 1,780km north of Brisbane and 70km north of Cairns, Port Douglas is a resort village situated between Cairns and the World Heritage-listed rainforests of the Daintree and Cape Tribulation.
Rainforest Habitat Port Douglas
A meandering walkway allows the visitor to experience different levels of the rainforest and the varied microenvironments encapsulated within. The Wildlife Habitat is a partner with The Wet Tropics Management in the goal of rainforest conservation and education.
A visit to the World Heritage listed rainforest environment of Mossman Gorge in Northern Queensland is a must during any time spent in Australia.
Daintree River Ferry
The Daintree River Ferry, 50km north of Port Douglas, is the only way to cross the river. It operates on a cable system and is capable of taking up to 16 vehicles across the river at a time. This is the only cable ferry operating in a World Heritage area in the world.
Alexandra Lookout - Daintree National Park
A gorgeous view back over the Daintree Rainforest and the mouth of the Daintree River, and out across the Coral Sea you can see the inner reefs of the Great Barrier Reef.
