Transportation from Cairns airport to Thala Beach Resort

Does anyone know of a company that can provide transportation from Cairns airport to the Thala Beach Resort? The resort offers both bus shuttle or private car options but I don't know if their private car option is reasonable and would like to compare the price to another company before booking.

There are several shuttles which can be pre booked or booked on arrival from the airport that travel from the airport to Port Douglas. Thala is on the way and just short of Port Douglas.

Coral Sea Coaches

Oasis Transport

Hi

What sort of price are they asking?

Don't forget it is nearly a 40 min drive from Cairns

I have used http://www.con-x-ion.com/ before and it was around $80 per person - we decided we would have been better off getting a car - as if you're outside of Port Douglas you may need a car to get around.

I would seriously consider renting a car. Not just because of the cost factor, although, when we stayed at Thala, a rental was cheaper than paying for airport transfers and then catching the shuttle into PD which is 20 minutes away. It also gave us the freedom to visit places like Mossman Gorge, The Daintree and Cape Tribulation and the Atherton Tablelands at our own leisure.
