An Afternoon in Port Douglas

If you like to sleeping, that’s ok – you don’t have to get up early to catch the worm in Port Douglas. There is still a whole heap to catch later in the day. Here is our list of our favourite things to do in the afternoon in Port.

Sunset sail – Jump on one of the luxurious sailing vessels in the evening & watch a captivating North Queensland sunset as the sun sinks behind the spectacular mountain ranges and the evening sweeps you away. What better way to relax with friends & soak up the ambience of sailing after a hard day of holidaying?

Sunset horse ride along the beach – Feel the freedom of riding along a deserted stretch of beach through some the most spectacular scenery in the world.  Listen to the waves crash & the sound of hooves sinking into the golden sands. You’ve always dreamed about it … here’s your chance to do it!

Grubs trike bike sunset tour – If you’re feeling adventurous then why not try an evening sunset cruise on the latest thing in Port Douglas: a trike bike tour. What better way to finish the evening than with a bottle of wine, cruising on the back of the trike, listening to the rumble of the engine & watching the day turn into night.

Sea kayak – If you want an adventure to explore Cape Tribulation’s beaches, reefs, mangroves & marine wildlife, then why not take a paddle tour.  Indulge in the views as the sun sets behind Mount Sorrow.  Sea kayaking is an awesome way to experience this amazing tropical environment.

Picnic by the Sea – If budget is a concern or you just want to have a relaxed evening with family & friends, our recommendation is to have a picnic or BBQ in the beautiful Stinger Park.  Watch the boats come in from exploring the reef & gaze at the sunset as it sinks behind Mossman Gorge.

Whatever you do in the afternoon in Port Douglas, youwon’t be disappointed!
