Experience the Tropical North Queensland on your next Port Douglas holiday. The Tropical North is a place of extremes – where the dense tropical rainforest meets the sparkling ocean lapping on white sandy beaches. Fringed with tropical reef in the water, and scorched red-earthed outback in the centre, Northern Queensland attracts families, couples and adventurers, wanderers and explorers who take a piece of the north with them as they continue to travel.
The summer season brings humid temperatures and monsoonal style rains, whilst the winters are balmy, calm and sun drenched. Nowhere else do you see giant saltwater crocodiles cruising silently in rivers, or have the chance to see dozens of reptile and mammal species at home in trees or burrowed into the earth.
Not only does North Queensland provide a wanderlust adventure for the traveller at heart, it provides a relaxed and picturesque location for those who wish to lay poolside and sip cocktails, or shop and dine in places such as Palm Cove and Cairns.
Tourists and locals have been flocking to the region for many years, attracting families on school holiday adventures, international tourists wanting to visit natural wonders and world heritage listed sites and many couples holding their wedding celebrations or honeymoons in Port Douglas, creating lasting memories and special moments in the region.
