Port Douglas

Port Douglas is one of Australia’s northernmost towns and although relatively remote, it is also accessible. International carriers fly direct to Cairns and the hour’s drive north along the Cook Highway to Port Douglas is a scenic route through thriving sugar plantations at the foot of rainforest clad mountains, on the shores of the Coral Sea. It is worth timing arrival in daylight just to take in the spectacular natural surroundings en route to Port Douglas.

 

 

Weather

At only 16 degrees south of the equator, Port Douglas has a tropical climate and typically only two seasons, 'The Wet' and 'The Dry'. The wet season, corresponding roughly with summer in more southern parts of Australia, lasts from December to about March. During the wet, spectacular storms blow in from the Coral Sea, humidity is high, and temperatures average around 32°C (89°F). In the dry season, from May to October, the days are clear and balmy, with temperatures peaking at 25°C (77°F.) Temperatures rarely drop much below 18°C (64°F) degrees on the coldest nights. The sea is pleasantly warm year-round, ranging from 23°C (73°F) in the coldest months to 28°C (83°F) in February. Individual air conditioning units in each room at Villa Empat Puluh Dua make staying comfortable at any time of the year, and the heated pool is warm enough to swim in right through the cooler months.
