Port Douglas Australia is just an hour’s drive north from Cairns via a spectacular coastal road that is surrounded by forest and the Coral Sea. It is the only place on Earth where two World Heritage listed jewels exist; the Great Barrier Reef and the rainforest of Daintree and Cape Tribulation. This laid back tropical oasis with sophisticated worldly comforts offers a small friendly village atmosphere. Go from business suit to barefoot and frantic to free. Refresh, restore and revitalise, in the aquamarine reef waters of the Coral Sea, the crystal creeks of Mossman Gorge, and the palm fringed golden sands of Port Douglas Four Mile Beach.
There are a range of Port Douglas tours, attractions and activities to suit all visitors. Soak up the sunshine on Four Mile Beach, stroll Macrossan Street among the village shops, galleries, historic buildings and the seaside Port Douglas Sunday market. Play a round of golf, visit a rainforest wildlife centre, relax over sun downer drinks at a boardwalk café, or dine on a delicious tropical dinner at one of the many fine restaurants.
Port Douglas is the closest gateway to the Great Barrier Reef. There’s a Great Barrier Reef tour to suit all ability and experience levels, whether you want to go diving and snorkelling, fishing, or perhaps staying dry on a reef pontoon, our tours are so easily accessible that everyone can experience this extraordinary underwater world.
The World Heritage Daintree Rainforest is also within easy reach of Port Douglas. The lush green coastal strip of the Daintree, Cape Tribulation region to the north of Port Douglas is home to some of the oldest forests in the world and is a treasure trove of rare plant and animal species.
A holiday can be about giving back—giving back to yourself after working hard or going through a tough time. There aren’t, however, many properties that go the extra mile like Thank You Accommodation and give back to the world while giving you a place to chillout, relax, rejuvenate and recuperate while donating ten percent of yours (and every guest’s) stay to your choice from four charities. Whether you choose to help endangered orangutans with The Orangutan Project®, or young Australians in need of professional healthcare with Youngcare® Australia, making a childs wish come true with Make-A-Wish® or helping Turia Pitt, a beautiful young burns survivor with an amazing spirit, after staying at Gratitudes Boutique Suites you will come away feeling relaxed and refreshed from your holiday but also feel fantastic knowing that your stay has helped support one of these four amazing charities.
