Welcome and congratulations.

Start off with you accommodation.

Rendezvous Reef Resorts is located about a 5 minute drive to town, definately too far to walk and too hot. Witthout a car, there are shuttle buses that you can use, around $2.50 each way per person.

If using them on a regular basis,ask for a weekly pass, it may work out cheaper.

There are no shops in the vicinity, although a smallish complex is within walking distance where you can purchase great fish and chips, a bottle shop, a video shop and an eatery called OTZ, which is just great.The closest supermarket will be IGA, near the Rainforest Habitat, again too far to walk.

The Scooter Hire place is located near the town, you can ring them on arrival and they may a drop off service ( need to check that one, as I'm not sure) I couldn't find a website for them, but here's alink for details plazaportdouglas.com.au/port_douglas_motorbi…

Snorkelling, as per my previous post, if only snorkelling,then try Wavelengthm they are the snorkel experts,no divers on board and small group of 30. If thinking of an intro dive, then Wavelength is not the one, go for, Poseidon, Silversonic or HABA

A safari, I guess you mean a 4WD safari to the rainforest, try Tony's Tropical Tours. I've been on most and this one has the edge. Great guides, small numbers of 6 on board, great locations without the crowds and they include swimming in a great stream.

Sky Diving, you'll need to do from cairns,can't recommend any,as I haven't been, but someone may be able to add to all this.
