"Exemplar Coach and limo service" Top 5 Page for this destination Port Douglas Transportation Tip by sirgaw

Port Douglas Transportation: 12 reviews and 16 photos


It’s a competitive market carting tourists from Cairns airport the 65 kilometres to Port Douglas and I should say it is a very spectacular road. Touted to be one of the best ocean side drives in Australia it is all but deserted and if the same road was in Europe, there would be an almost unbroken line of towns and condominiums – perhaps that almost deserted drive is indicative of the vastness of Australia and the low population density.

I had been quite fortunate in hearing about a web site where membership is free, but there are savings to be had on a range of goods and services. Suggest signing up with Benefits Direct so you can take advantage of a 10% discount on transport to/from Cairns airport to Port Douglas.

We used ‘a seat in a coach’ with Exemplar 3 times and found they were very professional and, importantly, on time. Highly recommend and particularly when the price is $A30.60 per person per trip – a savings of around $5 on their competitors.

Note – photo has been taken from exemplar’s web site – unfortunately my camera decided to have a “bad hair day” the day I used their coach service.
