Planning for July 8th-15th with 2 adult daughter ages 21 and 23.
This will be our first time in Oz from the USA and decided on Port Douglas after reading this forum - since it is the closest to the reefs and 2 of us tend to get queasy on rough seas (hope it is calm during our stay).
Would like something very close to beach and downtown. Would like to pay about $250AUD per night - but flexible to pay a bit more. Any specific suggestions? Everyone seems to like the Verandahs - how far are they from the beach?
Do we need a car in Port Douglas?
