Australia’s most scenic drive connects the tropical city of Cairns with the cosmopolitan village of Port Douglas – made famous over the years for its laid back lifestyle and luxurious blend of world-class restaurants, boutiques and attractions. Not surprisingly, it is a sought-after haven by the world’s rich and famous – notably, former US President Bill Clinton and Mick Jagger to name only two.
With a backdrop of rainforest mountains, the coastal village is a gateway to the Great Barrier Reef as well as the world heritage listed forests of Cape Tribulation. For visitors, the list of things to do is endless – from touring the surrounding region to engaging in any number of extreme sports, water pursuits, golf, helicopter rides, cycling, visiting wildlife parks, hiking or chilling out in one of the many local day spas. This is the perfect getaway for romantics, families – in fact – anyone who desires a memorable holiday.
