Just an hour’s drive north of Cairns via a spectacular coastal road is the tropical destination of Port Douglas. It is the only place on Earth where two World Heritage listed wonders exist virtually side-by-side; the Great Barrier Reef and the rainforest of Daintree and Cape Tribulation. Refresh, restore and revitalise, in the aquamarine reef waters of the Coral Sea, the crystal creeks of Mossman Gorge, and the golden sands of Four Mile Beach.
Port Douglas is located at the end of a peninsula with a natural harbour and marina on one side. The famous Four Mile Beach is along the other side with the main street, Macrossan street running between. On the eastern end of Macrossan and the corner of Garrick Street is Balboa Apartments — Port Douglas Daintree accommodation.
Our stylish one, two and three bedroom fully self contained apartments have generous living areas that open onto large balconies, or patios with outdoor dining settings and barbecues overlooking a lovely heated salt water pool. This accommodation venue is perfect for entertaining family and friends.
Go deep along the trails, or you take the boardwalks of the Cape Tribulation section of Daintree National Park to experience the amazing diversity of flora and fauna on a day trip to the Daintree from Port Douglas. The Daintree Rainforest has been 400 million years in the making with no other rainforest that is quite like it in the Southern Hemisphere.
The choice is yours to go on a self-drive expedition or sign up for a tour. If you drive yourself to Cape Tribulation there are a number of short and easy bush walks through the rainforest, but keep your eyes peeled, these exits can be easy to miss. You will see the same things if you do go on a self-drive expedition, but it is likely that you will not know the significance of what you are seeing. A guided tour will provide you with an interesting and informative narrative as you experience the wonder of the Daintree. Check in at our Tour Desk, we can assist you to choose exactly the right tours for you. And our booking service is entirely complimentary.
