For the budget-conscious, Backpacker Hostels are they way to go! Although there is only a few backpacker hostels in Port Douglas, these properties still offer the same lively environment that backpackers are renowned for.
Many reef tours depart from Port Douglas, so make sure you enquire at your hostel's tour desk for special deals on Great Barrier Reef tours and diving trips, as many will have access to discounts unavailable to the general tourist public.
Alternatively, there are many tours to FNQ, like Cape Tribulation or Cooktown, which pass through Port Douglas and stop over for a day or two. If you would like to know more about these options, please email us.
