Port Douglas has plenty of activities, open spaces, parklands and playgrounds to ensure a happy and safe family holiday for visitors with children. Running along the alluring sands and splashing in the azure waters of Four Mile Beach in the heart of town is just the beginning of the fun for parents and kids in Port Douglas.

Day or half-day tours out to the Great Barrier Reef for snorkelling and diving among the colourful coral are an ideal way to start a holiday in the area. And once you have exhausted the water options, take a road trip to the Mossman Gorge for a rainforest walk and swim in the granite rock pools. Night tours in the Daintree Rainforest will get those young eyes popping at seeing so many amazing nocturnal creatures.
