PORT DOUGLAS

September 25, 2017
Located in far north Queensland, Port Douglas was the perfect place to shoot our summer campaign. It boasts the beautiful Daintree Rainforest & is a gateway to the Great Barrier Reef. Between shots, we explored this tropical destination. Read on to find out our must-visit spots…

FOUR MILE BEACH
Four Mile Beach runs parallel to the main road into town. Featuring white sandy beaches and plenty of palms, this picturesque beach makes for the perfect holiday snap. Although take caution when swimming due to crocodiles (there will be signs) & if it’s stinger season (around November to May).

GREAT BARRIER REEF
Accessing the beautiful reef is easy from the marina. The boat ride out to the reef isn’t overly bumpy. The air is warm, as is the water (even in the depths of winter!). Be prepared to see whales, dolphins, turtles and bat fish! You’ll return from a day on the reef extremely tired but with a fulfilled soul.

CAPE TRIBULATION & THE DAINTREE RAINFOREST
An hour drive out of Port Douglas, Cape Tribulation is a must visit! Disconnect from the bustle while you drive through the winding rainforest road. The elusive Cassowary calls the Daintree Rainforest home so keep your eyes peeled! Our top tip? Stop at Mason’s Store & Café, make your way around the back and you’ll find a luxurious water hole. Not only is it a refreshing dip, it’s also one of the best spots to see a variety of fish and turtles and a rather cool looking eel!

MOSSMAN RIVER
One of the best ways to explore the Mossman River is to walk along the riverbank or go stand up paddle boarding. Whatever you do, do it slowly. Take in the canopy of the Daintree Rainforest, ancient trees, sugar cane railway crossings and native creatures!
