Five of us will be spending 3 days/ 3 nights in Port Douglas in April. We are avid travelers and live by the the "we can sleep when we're dead" philosophy, so we are not afraid to pack things in. We arrive in Cairns at 10:30am on day 1, and leave at 10:30am on day 4. We are staying at the Sheraton Port Douglas.
This is my itinerary so far:
Day 1 - land, possibly take sky-rail? sky-rail and train? check in. Eat somewhere fun (Salsa bar and grill?). How do I get from the airport to the sky rail or to my hotel? Do I need to rent a car?
Day 2 - Great Barrier Reef snorkel tour (already booked with wavelength charters ). Would like to eat somewhere fun (beach shack?)
Day 3 - Daintree? Dan Irby's? I am not sure how to get here form our hotel, how long to plan for? Do I need to rent a car? What else to see? Where to eat? Can someone put this day together for me? This is my youngest son's birthday, too, so I want it to be a fun day and go somewhere nice (but not too nice - he is turning ten) for dinner to celebrate.
Day 4 - Flight leaves at 10:30am from Cairns. Probably no room to squeeze anything in before checking in.
