Port Douglas is a small, laid-back village of about 3000 residents 70km north of Cairns. It is a very popular tourist town being near two of North Queenland's greatest natural assets - the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest. It is the only spot in the world where two World Heritage listed sights exist side-by-side.

Investment in world-class hotels has enabled Port Douglas to become a very popular tourist destination, especially for people wishing to escape the noise and hubbub of the closest city, Cairns.
