Port Douglas Adventure Activities

Port Douglas may be a great place to relax but it is the perfect location for some seriously fun adventure activities covering land, sea and air. Whether you sign up for windsurfing lessons off Four Mile Beach, 4 wheel driving Safaris along the rough outback tracks or learn to scuba dive on the reef you’ll be doing it all in one of the most beautiful settings on Earth.

There is almost no end to the adventurous things to do in Port Douglas yet adrenalin junkies still create new and exciting activities. Give Jungle surfing a shot as you fly through the rainforest canopies attached to a flying fox zipline. The trees rushing past is a truly exhilarating experience!

Port Douglas really does have it all (even activities for those who aren’t as adventurous). Take a look at the options below and start making a "To Do" list for your next holiday.
