Destination Daintree

Port Douglas Valley Retreat

A 50 minute drive, from the Cairns International Airport, on a winding, spectacularly scenic ocean-front road, considered to be one of the most beautiful coastal highway stretches in the country, will lead you to the Port Douglas Valley Retreat. Quiet and secluded Port Douglas Valley Retreat is the perfect base for exploring the Great Barrier Reef, the World Heritage listed rainforests of the Daintree and the beaches at Cape Tribulation.

The gateway to the Daintree Coast, the Daintree River Ferry, is situated just 45 minutes drive north of the Retreat whilst a 12 minute drive allows you to soak up the village atmosphere of Port Douglas. From the Port Douglas Marina Mirage you may embark upon any and every conceivable tour of the Great Barrier Reef. The relaxed and friendly attitude and laid-back natural style allows Port Douglas to retain its undeniable status as one of the world’s favourite tropical destinations.

Accommodation at Port Douglas Valley Retreat is nestled beneath the prominent landmark, Black Mountain, at the head of the picturesque Mowbray Valley. Accommodation at the Port Douglas Valley Retreat is presented as a traditional ‘Queenslander’ comfortably sleeping up to 8 people in quiet, enveloping tropical rainforest surrounds.
