          Stay at Thala if you want to see Australian wildlife and birdlife up close. The locals (animals) are incredibly friendly and so are the staff who really add to the overall experience. Great lodge style property with views and beach access.

          How often are does the shuttle run to/from Port Douglas? We are hoping to have a couple of meals outside of the resort and would rather not drive after the meal. How much is the shuttle each way? Are there private companies that offer a shuttle to Thala from PD?

          The options are either a shuttle bus transfer, private car transfer or hire a car. We can arrange any of those options for you when you make a reservation.
          Is the resort suitable for people with limited walking ability, not too many stairs for example?
