Get a better view of Port Douglas by kayaking through the waters. Uncover Port Douglas' natural wonders

If you haven't been to Port Douglas yet, there's no excuse not to head there this summer. It's home to some of the most stunning scenery in the world, and it's right on your doorstep! 

Located an hour's drive north of Cairns in serene Tropical North Queensland, you'll be greeted by an abundance of lush landscapes, breathtaking scenery and some of the most tranquil blue waters you will see in your lifetime. So what are you waiting for?

The first step is selecting your holiday accommodation. Match the beauty of the area with Mantra in the Village, which has a Roman-inspired pool and cascading waterfall for you to take in, along with fabulous boutique-style accommodation to really make you feel like you're on the holiday of a lifetime.


"Head south to the Mossman Gorge to see crystal-clear waters from the Mossman River sweep over boulders into the gorge, or set off to Cape Tribulation for an awe-inspiring view of rainforest-covered mountains cascading down to sandy beaches.


If you can only do one thing while you're in this tropical paradise, take a trip to the Great Barrier Reef. It's one of the seven natural wonders of the world and is a true Australian icon. You really have to see the Reef to properly experience its beauty, so take it in with a cruise, snorkelling adventure or even paddle your kayaks around the beautiful bays. It's the world's largest reef system and is home to over 6,600 different marine plant and animal species, so you're bound to see something to take your breath away.

For another touch of natural beauty, head to the Daintree National Park for a glimpse of the oldest living rainforest on Earth. The Daintree Rainforest is the only place in the whole world where two World Heritage-listed sites meet - the forest itself and the Great Barrier Reef.

Head south to the Mossman Gorge to see crystal-clear waters from the Mossman River sweep over boulders into the gorge, or set off to Cape Tribulation for an awe-inspiring view of rainforest-covered mountains cascading down to sandy beaches.
