Family holidays in Port Douglas
Family holidays Port Douglas style are full of fresh air and sunshine.
In the heart of Port Douglas are parklands and playgrounds that buzz with locals and tourists.
On Four Mile Beach, families love building sandcastles, playing sports and splashing and swimming in the ocean.
The small village atmosphere makes these open spaces happy and safe destinations for the kids to run and play.
We are starting with the largest living thing, the Great Barrier Reef. Choose the reef tour that will suit your family best. From Reef pontoons to smaller vessels offer a more intimate time. Then there are half-and full-day options and expert advice and guidance for swimming, snorkelling and scuba diving.
Next, explore Low Isles, starting with snorkelling and then discovering the historic lighthouse.
There are also underwater observatories, semi-submersibles and pontoons that allow for relaxation and reef experience.
Then plan a visit to the Port Douglas zoo. The Wildlife Habitat offers breakfast with the birds and lunch with the lorikeets. The latest attraction is CrocArena, where you can swim with the saltwater crocodiles. Other experiences include hand-feeding wallabies and kangaroos, and you can even have your photo taken with a koala.
Families also love taking in Mossman Gorge for a rainforest walk and swim in the granite rock pools.
Night tours in the Daintree Rainforest get young eyes popping at the sight of amazing nocturnal creatures.
Next, head south to the famous Hartleys Crocodile farm and plan on spending the day exploring this fantastic attraction.
