Port Douglas is located approximately one hour drive north from Cairns. Without a doubt, the best way to get there is by hiring a car. The drive to Port Douglas along the picturesque Cook Hwy is superb, setting the mood for what to expect when you arrive in this charming seaside town. The road follows the coast for most of the way, occasionally venturing into cane fields with rugged mountain back drops.
