Port Douglas and Surrounds
From Saltwater Port Douglas – a short walk to panoramic 4 Mile Beach, a stroll to renown restaurants (using local produce, seafood, and fruit) and bars, shopping at chic boutiques and visiting the local market, relaxing day spas, art galleries presenting the finest of Australian creativity and the fabulous marina that most reef tours depart from.
From Saltwater Port Douglas – less than 10 minutes to 2 world class golf courses or 20 minutes to a challenging local golf course.
From Saltwater Port Douglas – the Daintree Cape Tribulation Rainforest is a pristine and ancient 16,965 hectare World Heritage Wonder. It is a place of breathtaking beauty, with rugged mountain ranges rising sharply behind the narrow coastal strip, dense rainforest tumbling down the mountains to the beaches, and a bewildering variety of flora and fauna.
There’s a variety of cruises down the Daintree river which allow visitors an opportunity to see crocodiles as well as have a close inspection of the mangroves and the rainforest edging the Daintree river.
From Saltwater Port Douglas – Whether you snorkel or dive the Great Barrier Reef experience is astounding. Fish in bewildering colours float around you: violent pink, neon green, Nemo orange. Grey carbuncled shells of giant clams open up to reveal a flesh of startling beauty, soft mauves dotted with electric blue and the palest of yellow. Soft pastel corals of ivory and primrose, lavender and peach, carpets the seabed. This is Australia’s Great Barrier Reef — an improbable landscape of improbable creatures. There are dozens of cruise companies offering services to the reef, most including meals and lectures from marine experts, as well as snorkelling and scuba equipment.
Most tour operators will pick up directly in front of Saltwater for Reef, Rainforest Tours and more activities. A tropical getaway where a hire car is not necessary.
