All about Port Douglas

When to visit

The state of Queensland offers stunning spring weather: September and October brings warm, comfortable temperatures that are perfect for things to do like splashing in the sea and wandering through the Daintree Rainforest. This time of year typically has lower humidity and less rain, so you can take full advantage of every day you spend in Port Douglas. It’s also before the summer school holidays, so fewer locals will be traveling.

Getting around

Port Douglas is a walkable, compact town, but a car can be useful if you’re looking to explore some of the remote hikes or beaches in the region. If you do plan to rent a car, just remember that in Australia you drive on the left side of the street. You’ll also find public buses that operate between many of the main tourist attractions, such as Mossman Gorge and Skyrail Cableway.

Traveler tips

For a beloved local tradition, take a morning stroll through the Port Douglas Sunday Market. The market has been running for more than 25 years out of Market Park, which overlooks the sea. All products sold at the market must be locally grown or made, keeping the market feeling truly unique. Pick up tasty treats or souvenirs to take home, and spend a lazy morning people-watching.


Frequently Asked Questions

Popular activities in Port Douglas include swimming at the beach, taking boat trips out to the reef for snorkeling or diving, and exploring the rainforest at Mossman Gorge.

How do I spend a day in Port Douglas?

What is the best month to visit Port Douglas?

June is the best month to visit Port Douglas. It not only offers warm, dry weather during Australia’s winter, but it also sits outside of jellyfish season, making it a safer and more pleasant time to go swimming.

How far is Daintree forest from Port Douglas?

Is it better to go Cairns or Port Douglas?

Port Douglas offers quicker access to beaches and the Great Barrier Reef compared to Cairns. You’ll also have a shorter trip to the Daintree Rainforest if you stay in Port Douglas. Cairns is a bigger city with better shopping and nightlife and plenty of nature tours leave from the city.
