    Loves the location and beautiful balcony view. Also the staff were super friendly
    I liked the layout of the room and fabulous sea view from the balcony. Easy hotel to get around. Great as a base for the area.

    This is a spectacular place to visit. Great value. Breakfast with the birds was fabulous and so was lunch with the lorikeets. We also did the swim with the salt water crocs. It was just wonderful. Recommend you look them up and plan to spend a great few days there.

    Visited opal reef on Calypso for a 3 dive day tripo. I had prepared myself for the reef to be in only average condition, but it was actually in stunningly good condition. I have been diving the reef for around 40 years, and it may just about be the best I have seen it.....very impressive

    St Mary's by the Sea was a Roman Catholic church built in 1914 but in 1981 it was in poor condition and was given to the community. The community restored and it was located next to the bay it is now a heritage-listed non-denominational church at Wharf Street, It is on the Queensland Heritage Register

    My wife was looking forward to the markets but due to the late start from Cairns many of the stall holders were already packing up when we arrived. Those stalls that still remained showcased a range of locally made arts and crafts, jewellery, leatherwork, timber carvings, varieties of local produce and assorted snacks and refreshments. Only had about 20 minutes but enough to whet the appetite for another visit.

    A must do in Port Douglas to watch the sunset. It’s a beautiful location with palm trees fringing the water and mountains in the background. It’s great for kids too with plenty of space to run around and a playground.

    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!

    Entering the courthouse you get quite a start to see a real courtroom with life sized figures representing the people who were part of the trial that took place. You sit in the original jury seats and watch a video of the trial and at the end consider your verdict. There are also interesting photos and information about the Chinese gold miners in Port Douglas, the first marine biologists at Low Isles, and also information about the Battle of the Coral Sea.

    This place offers visitors a chance to see some great examples of modern aboriginal art and is a kind of oasis on a street dominated by bars and beachware shops
