Education in Port Douglas

Port Douglas isn't a big place but there are a few state primary and high schools in the region for those thinking of making the move.

In Queensland, if your child is turning the age of 5 before June, they are able to begin their Prep year which is their first year at primary school (and has replaced pre school). 

They then attend primary school from Grade 1 to 7, and high school from Grade 8 to 12, attending for 4 terms per year (view 2014 holiday dates). School leavers then have the choice of attending university or TAFE or entering the workforce. 

There are no Universities in Port Douglas but there are a few in nearby Universities in Cairns and regional North Queensland.
