Port Douglas is the place to stop on your way to cruising the Great Barrier Reef. The popular beach resort is sophisticated and fun at the same time. After being overtaken by the late entrepreneur Christopher Skase, the remote fishing village that was Port Douglas has turned into an upmarket holiday town with heaps to see and do.
Port Douglas features a million-dollar marina and beautiful 5-star resorts but if you are here for just a day, make sure you see the town’s best attractions:
Port Douglas’ famous Four Mile Beach wraps the eastern side of the peninsula and is a must-see for its perfect sand and swaying palm trees.
Embarking on a Port Douglas cruise adventure from a home port near you is easy, the hard part is to decide which one of the many great cruise lines to go with. All of the ones offering Port Douglas cruises are big names in the industry and boast beautiful itineraries.
Choose a Celebrity Cruises ship if you are in the mood for some luxury and sophistication. Cruising with Carnival Cruises Australia and Royal Caribbean means endless fun for the whole family. While Princess Cruises promises you rest and relaxation on board, plus they have 3 different ships sailing to Port Douglas, providing you with more choice.
Port Douglas cruises are running all year round, however, we would recommend booking for the months of April to October as these are the best and safest months to swim.
October is particularly pleasant:
