Port Douglas Things to Do: 97 reviews and 207 photos

Have just come back from Port Douglas and had a great time. They have Four Mile Beach which is netted off from the jellyfish and crocs and is a lovely white sandy beach. Also it's only 25 mins drive to Hartley's Crocodie Adventures which is a fantastic day out. Boat cruise, feeding/shows and a vast array of animals to see. You can even get your picture taken with a python or baby crocodile! There's a little cafe onsite and the staff are really friendly and helpful.

Would not recommend going to Cape Tribulation unless you're a huge fan of lookouts. Honestly just drive to the lookout above Port Douglas (less than 2 mins drive) and it's just as good. We wasted a lot of money driving to Cape Trib (including a 3 minute ferry - no jokes - which cost $22 return for the car!). It's really not worth it and there's not much to see up there. If you do go up I'd recommend the Bat House so you can hand fed the bat, but don't go on their nature walk unless you absolutely love finding new trees. There are some good boardwalks too.

Would definitely recommend the Sunday Morning Markets 8am onwards. Got 3 pineapples for $5 and they were amazing. Also various things to buy from jewellery to fresh produce to boomerangs etc. Fantastic morning out.
