1. Visit the Outer Reef with Quicksilver Cruises

Location:Wharf St, Port Douglas

There are a number of operators running daily cruises to the beautiful Outer Great Barrier Reef in Far North Queensland. One of the operators includes Quicksilver Cruises who travel out to the Agincourt Reef for the day to allow passengers to snorkel, dive and relax on their spacious activity platform. This is one of the best ways to explore the outer reef and get up close to a range of marine life!

2. Visit the Daintree Rainforest & Cape Tribulation

Location:1.5 hours north of Port Douglas

Featuring a diverse ecosystem and some of the oldest preserved plant life on the planet, the Daintree is home to over 3000 species of plants and contains 395 species that are listed as either rare of threatened, making for a delicate balance of organisms that have existed in harmony since time immemorial. While it's possible to drive yourself, planning and getting to all of its highlights in a comprehensive itinerary can be quite a chore, and that's where tours come in.

3. Explore Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas

Location:Port Douglas Road, Port Douglas

A popular attraction in the region, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas is a great, reasonably-priced showcase of Australian wildlife with some of its own interesting quirks and offerings to set it apart from other standard zoos. Featuring a huge and diverse range of flora and fauna, the facility offers the chance to truly get very close to a wide range of birds and other animal life.

4. Low Isles with Sailaway & Wavedancer

Location:Shop 18, The Reef Marina, Port Douglas

A slower, extended and more leisurely reef experience, the Low Isles present the opportunity for a leisurely, stress-free visit exemplified by operators Sailaway and Wavedancer's sailing trips. While in the Low Isles, you can take part in all the essential reef activities such as snorkelling, glass-bottom boat trips and the simple enjoyment of strolling on pristine white beaches amongst the palm trees.

5. Try Jungle Surfing

Location:24 Camelot Close, Cape Tribulation

Jungle Surfing Canopy Tours based out of Cape Tribulation offer guests the chance to zip through this ancient forested area at high speeds with a series of interconnected platforms that provides not only a dose of fun but great views of the surrounding rainforest that put its dense greenery on full display. Hovering at a height of 20 metres above the forest floor is a rare opportunity, and the array of freshwater streams below and colours of the reef in the distance make for some great visual variety.

6. Scenic Flight with Great Barrier Reef Helicopters

Location:Hangar 10, Bush Pilots Avenue

Helicopters rides provide the added benefit of being able to get a close-up look at natural attractions in the region at low altitude, with the pilots adept at hovering in a stable manner to give you a good glimpse at the various animal and plant life beneath the water. It's a good thing that the helicopters are designed with maximum transparency in mind, as passengers will all have access to window seats for an additional unrestricted view.

7. Visit Flagstaff Hill and 4 Mile Beach

Location:Waterfront, Port Douglas

This duo of highlights in Port Douglas are directly intertwined with one another; Flagstaff Hill's lookout encompasses 4 Mile Beach as part of its panorama, and together they make for a wonderful snapshot of the region. Flagstaff Hill is an easily accessible summit that serves as Port Douglas' ultimate viewing point, providing majestic, sweeping views of the sandy Four Mile Beach below as well as the surrounding mountain and sea panorama.

8. Experience Flames of the Forest

Location:29 Barrier Street, Port Douglas

Conducted with an appropriate amount of respect to the Aboriginal culture, Flames of the Forest morphs the spectacular ambience of the rainforest with a combination of storytelling, traditional music and dance with delicious food for a highly entertaining evening. Combined, this all makes for a refreshing break from your average sit-down-and-dine vanilla restaurant experience.

9. Go Ballooning with HotAir

Location:30 Macrossan Street, Port Douglas

A hot air balloon flight with operator HotAir can provide you with a tranquil and stunning viewpoint that few other sightseeing opportunities can match. The combination of clear morning skies and the slow, drifting serenity of a balloon flight allows ample time to grab panoramic photos and memories.

10. Go Beach and Trail Horse Riding

Location:Daintree Station, Mossman

Nature is a key focus of Port Douglas, and in terms of exploring its land-based offerings, there are few better ways to do so while retaining this natural feel than a horse riding tour with Daintree Station. Located just outside the centre of Port Douglas, it's an experience that allows for exploration of both the green inland areas as well as Port's iconic beaches and is set up with a friendliness and willingness to accommodate first-time riders and even kids of a very young age
