Port Douglas is a resort town about an hour's drive north of Cairns. The face of this town is its long beach with beautiful golden sands. Visitors can enjoy the time spent relaxing and enjoying the view of the rich waters of the Great Barrier Reef. The town, with its luxurious hotels, elegant stores, restaurants, and cafes, is attracting more and more attention every year as a desirable hideaway resort.
Cairns, a flourishing city on the east coast of Australia in northern Queensland, is the gateway to two World Natural Heritage sites: the Great Barrier Reef, the world's largest coral reef area, and the world's oldest tropical rainforest. The city has a laid-back atmosphere with palm trees lining the seafront, and in addition to fashionable hotels and restaurants, there are many attractive spots such as a zoo where you can hold koalas and a market with a wide variety of souvenirs.
