    This sanctuary houses a variety of Australian birds and animals including koalas and kangaroos. We most enjoyed the small nocturnal section which had jumping mice and the bouncing bettong. We felt that some animals needed more space (for example the cassowaries looked stressed). We did not take a tour and preferred to wander around at our leisure.

    What a beach. We got up early to see the sun rise, breath taking.
    We had a family wedding at sunset under the palms. So amazing and great weather.

    This is a lovely market with shade most of the way around.
    There’s plenty of variety so finding something for everyone shouldn’t be a problem.
    All the locals we met were happy to have a chat not just about whatever they were selling but in general.
    Parking can be hard to find if you’re driving but it’s right near the town centre so not a major issue.

    This snorkeling day out was simply the best. The clarity of the water and marine life, friendliness and knowledge of the staff, 3 snorkel sites all unique. Best marine photos ever! I will identify that black fish with white spots eventually :D

    This is a lovely little timber church sitting in front of the water. It was a very hot day but there was a nice breeze coming from the water side. Originally built in 1880 there was a service going on so only had a quick look inside, it was a Sunday. Easy to find on the foreshore, nearby there was a big market

    Great views … the reward after a climb. Best to go early as the sunrise is stunning was able to see all down the coast down 4 mile beach. A must if you are visiting the region.

    Brilliant! The lady who served us was so lovely. Very friendly and made us feel so welcome. The gin is exceptional! We loved the tasting tray and the popcorn to go with it. It was our second visit and would definitely go there again. We took two bottles away with us as we couldn’t choose between the great taste of the gin.

    We visited on Sat 1 June 2024.
    This lookout is in Port Douglas town.
    A great point to see along the coast.
    Definitely worth a stop.

    During our travels in Australia, we visited many Aboriginal Art galleries. Ngarru was a standout for the way their pieces are displayed, the expertise of their staff, and their prices.

    Herold was excellent! I play a lot of tennis in Melbourne, (both social comp and cardio) I booked some lessons while up here mainly for the exercise. Herold was great! I had a lot of fun. He pointed some things out to me about the way I was hitting the ball. And the difference was amazing.

    I can see why other reviewers say he would teach kids well too. He is friendly and really knows his tennis. The courts were great.

    I highly recommend him for a lesson or a cardio type hit. I will definitely book again when we are here next year. And I will book my kids in for lessons too!
