If only we had more time!!

We will have 2 half days and 3 full days in the Port Douglas area.

We were planning on using the 2 half days to enjoy PD, then the 1full day at each of Daintree(mossman, Cape T) - GBR - Kuranda. Does this sound OK?

Many thanks.

That's precisely what I would do too!

If one of your free late afternoons happens to be Wednesday, head down to the PD Yacht Club for WAGS - a sunset sail followed by drinks and dinner at the club - and you just pay for drinks and dinner. It's considered polite to buy a few drinks for the skipper who took you out sailing as well! You put your name on the list at 4 pm and head out sailing for a couple of hours at 4:30.

Sounds like a good plan. We found it took as longer to get to Cape at rib that we planned, because we had to queue for 90 minutes to get the ferry across the Daintree river, and then we wanted to stop at loads of walls and lookouts be route! So if you are planning to go to Mosman on the same day (we did it separately), make sure you start your day promptly and plan your stops wisely!

I assume you will have a car? Where are you dropping it off to? We had to drive ours back to cairns, and visited Kurunda en route. We found a morning was enough time to explore the markets and town of Kurunda, and to visit the nearby gorge/waterfall.

If you used one of your half days to visit Kurunda, you'd have an additional full day, which you could use to visit Mosman and see more of PD. The rainforest habitat at PD is a must for animal lovers!

Abs :)
