Port Douglas The Perfect Safe Holiday Destination For Everyone

It’s always in the media about how Port Douglas in Queensland Australia is the go to destination for the rich and famous, presidents and rock stars that love to flock here from all over the world to stay in our beautiful luxury holiday homes and mingle amongst the locals.

You read about how they love to visit the Great Barrier Reef islands, snorkel and scuba dive on luxury private charter yachts that depart from the Port Douglas marina and about someone spotting them dining in the local restaurants or hanging out in the local bars and pubs and maybe even participating in the famous toad races at the Iron Bar.

We also see them in the streets and share time with them just like everyone else living or on holidays in this little idyllic tropical village in north Queensland Australia.

Port Douglas is a place for everyone to feel safe, feel equal and a place to just relax and enjoy the weather and the beautiful tropical scenery.

Port Douglas has a vibe of its own and everyone seems to step in line with that vibe as soon as they are settled into their holiday accommodation and have their casual holiday gear on, it’s like a personality change and everyone is happy, inquisitive, polite, respectful and helpful.

Port Douglas accommodation choices vary from those ultra-luxury holiday homes right down to the backpacker style accommodation for the young worldly travellers and as such you see couples hand in hand on romantic holidays, families during the school holidays and business type groups in the region for conferences.

Port Douglas Weddings & Romantic Holidays

Like Palm Cove, Port Douglas is a mecca for couples from all over the world who wish to come and hold their destination wedding in this idyllic tropical location. 

Couples can hold their wedding ceremony on the beach under the palm trees, on the old sugar wharves, in a restaurant, in a beautiful park under the old fig and Banyan trees or even in a flame lit rainforest.

Family Resorts & Holiday Homes in Port Douglas

If you have a big family it is sometimes a good idea to look at a holiday home as an option to a resort style hotel or self-contained holiday apartment as you have more room and privacy in a holiday home for the children whether they are young or teenagers. You can also have a lot of meals at home like a barbeque or even have a chef come in and do a catered dinner party for you.

We have quite a number of holiday homes on offer ranging from all different prices in all different locations in and around Port Douglas.

The family resorts have huge swimming pools which keep the kids entertained for hours on end whilst the adults just lay by the pool reading a good book or catching up on the latest gossip magazine. We even offer free meals for children and free use of existing bedding when sharing the same room with adults.

During the year we have quite a few great holiday packages that offer free nights and discounted tour packages to make it more affordable for families to take a break. It is especially wise to travel out of peak school holiday periods to ensure you get the same high quality holiday but at half the price of the peak season rates.
