Chris has been in the area for 30 years and knows the local information that you won't get out of a guidebook. A little light on the textbook history of Port Douglas, but quite interesting nonetheless. He had quite a bit of knowledge about the birds and plants of the area. Would definitely recommend.

What a good way to get to know the history of Port Douglas. Informative with beautiful views all around. What a lovely way to start the day.

My husband and I were staying in Port Douglas for a week and took the walk with Chris on our first morning. Chris suggested a 7.30am start as it is hot in December. A good move. Chris has lived in Port Douglas for more than 30 years and was able to tell us about the lifestyle, history and changes in Port Douglas. Chris is also an avid bird watcher and pointed out many of the birds we saw with some information about them. The walking was at our pace and took us to some great view points and local points of interest. We are pleased we did the walk early in our stay as it gave us an insight into life in Port Douglas.

Found Chris's tour through trip advisor and were not disappointed. My husband and I stopped in Port Douglas on a cruise and wanted to do something on our own. Chris is a local and tells you all about the history, people, plants, trees and animals/birds in Port Douglas while he takes you on an about 2 hour walk. His tour finishes up in the heart of this little town. For us, having to get back to the ship in the afternoon it was perfect. We finished up just before lunch time, walked around and shopped a bit and then had lunch before heading back to the ship.
Great tour!

I remember your walk well, it was a very hot day for the so-called wet season. Thank you for your kind comments. We are out walking again today and it is a lot cooler after the overnight rain.

This tour was arranged prior to leaving Sydney on a cruise, Chris met us at the arranged spot & for the next two hours gave us an in depth tour of Port Douglas, his knowledge of the area was very enlightening. Thanks Chris for the interesting morning & would recommend Port Douglas Walk. Kind regards, Byron & Helen
