Accommodation for Great Barrier Reef Marathon

Balboa Apartments have superb fully self-contained accommodation for the Great Barrier Reef Marathon participants, supporters and spectators.

Our spacious and comfortable apartments in Port Douglas come fully equipped with a fully equipped kitchen (all mod cons: dishwasher, microwave, oven and cooktop etc), in-apartment laundry (washing machine, dryer, iron) with air conditioning in each room and ceiling fans. In-apartment entertainment is taken care of with Austar and DVD Player, and you’re never far from your email with our wi-fi-based internet that is available throughout the resort.

Make this base for your team in our one, two or three bedroom self-contained apartments that are a stones throw from the Great Barrier Reef Marathon starter line and minutes away from the dining and entertainment hub of Port Douglas — Macrossan Street.

There’s six options to choose from in the Great Barrier Reef Marathon. The gruelling 74 kilometre Ultramarathon is the most challenging course available. It’s recommended for runners who can complete a standard marathon in five hours. The three longest marathon courses each contain a lot of mixed gradients, and all with outstandingly picturesque backdrops: sugarcane fields, Four Mile Beach, valleys, rivers, creeks and rainforest. The tropical climate is also another element for competitors to contend with, along with other natural elements such as cassowaries, snakes, leeches and so on, to watch out for.

At Balboa Apartments Port Douglas you can unwind and barbeque your dinner on your own private balcony. Kick back with a cool drink, or relax around the relaxing solar heated saltwater pool. A plunge in the pool is a refreshing way to cool down and loosen those muscles. Take a stroll from your apartment to Four Mile Beach for a swim, lounge on the sand, or stroll along the coast.
