Port Douglas

Port Douglas is a major tourist town in Far North Queensland about 70km's north of Cairns. The town is spread along Four Mile Beach with some big resorts along the way the world-class Sheraton Mirage.

Port Douglas is right next to two very well known World Heritage areas, the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest. Numerous companies run daily trips to the outer reef and the Low Isles for scuba diving and snorkelling.

On 4 September 2006 the "Crocodile Hunter", Steve Irwin died at Batt Reef, off Port Douglas, after a stingray barb went through his chest into his heart while filming a documentary called The Ocean's Deadliest.
