Public Bus Cairns to Port Douglas

Is there a public bus service for this route? Even better would be from the airport direct to Port Douglas. If not, can you recommend a shuttle service?

Thanks in advance........

Also, any must do's in Port Douglas? We're thinking about car/scooter hire once there to explore the area.

There are a number of shuttle services but no standard Public Bus from Cairns to Port Douglas. Some of the Shuttle services do pick you up directly at the Airport.

If you want something special you can even get picked up with a Trike (they have a trailer for your luggage) - search for Grub's Personalised Trike Tours www.triketours.com.au

Shuttle buses you can check out are

- Sun Palm Transport

- Coral Reef Coaches & Limousines

- Exemplar Coaches and Limousines

As far as I know they all deliver very much the same service to similar prices, best check out their websites.

See you soon in Port :)

If you are going to hire a car in Port Douglas you may as well hire one at Cairns Airport instead of the shuttle bus wich from memory will cost you around 35 AU each and a very hairy ride as well. Dont be worried about the drive to Port Douglas you wont get lost its pretty staight forward.
