Port Douglas Coastcare Walk

At 4.4 kms long this walk will help keep you fit as you learn a lot about the coast and take in some of the best sights around Port Douglas.

Port Douglas is unique and has a huge Flying fox colony that leaps into the sky at dusk every night. To see this spectacular experience you need to be near the Rainforest Habitat about 10 minutes before sun down. Look up and you will see thousands of Spectacled Flying Foxes (bats) stream into the night sky. Very amazing.

Make your way down to the Yacht Club late on a Wednesday afternoon and the skippers (WAGS) there will take you for a free sail on the inlet. Be nice and buy them a beer after! (WAGS = Wednesday afternoon gentlemen sailing.)

Looking to spend a couple of hours at leisure and for free on a Sunday? Then head down to the local markets, appropriately named The Sunday Markets and held each Sunday of the year at Anzac Park which is located directly across the road from the Courthouse Hotel. Wander around and view the many local handycrafts or sit under a shady tree and listen/watch the buskers. A great range of fruit and vegetables are  also available. Set up time for the markets normally around 7.30 am but not all stalls are set up until around 8 or so, finish time, well that depends on the time of year and how many patrons, normally around 2.30 pm and even later.

Another great area to sit, relax and watch the boats come in and totally free is the Stinger Park (Rex Smeal Park). Take a bottle of something special, a few prawns or a packet of your favourite nibbles along, a towel, blanket or a couple of chairs and enjoy the views and slight breeze on a warm afternoon. Perfect if you have children, lots of play area around. To get there, turn right at the Courthouse Hotel and it's located just past the Old Courthouse Museum. Look out for dugongs in the boat channel.
