Port Douglas Adventure Activities

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!
