In addition, there are other options for enjoying nature by checking out the Rainforest Habitat and the Australian Muster Experience, while Flagstaff Hill affords incredible views over the town and the coast. Port Douglas also comes with one or two museums, including the Port Douglas Courthouse Museum, as well as a pretty church.
Four Mile Beach
This beautiful, sweeping beach stretches from the edge of downtown Port Douglas and heads south for four miles. It is one of Queensland's nicest beaches as it is long and wide and is good for families. Four Mile Beach is accessible from town on foot and is great for sunrises.
Located just south of town near the golf course is the Rainforest Habitat, where you can visit crocodiles, kangaroos, and koalas as well as close to 200 other species. Rainforest Habitat is especially popular with kids and is known for its champagne breakfast buffet.
Saint Mary's by the Sea
Port Douglas doesn't have many distinctive buildings, but Saint Mary's by the Sea is a nice break from the norm. It is the most popular church in town and is located right at the coast and surrounded by trees.
