The spectacular Great Barrier Reef Drive takes you an hour north of Cairns to Port Douglas. This intimate beachside village is an event planner’s paradise with five star resorts and luxurious rainforest retreats at your fingertips.
Meeting Venues and Accommodation
Port Douglas offers a variety of meeting possibilities from resort-side in lush tropical surrounds or under the rainforest canopy. With 3700 rooms and a stunning array of international resorts and apartments incorporating conference facilities, Port Douglas has options to suit any size group from intimate meetings to large conferences.
Further north, Cape Tribulation is ideal for event planners looking to cater for a truly green event or an exclusive executive retreat. Secluded lodges provide the perfect venue for smaller conferences and memorable incentive programs.
Take your gala dinner to stunning Four Mile Beach for an enchanted evening under the stars or let yourself be whisked away to a secret location for a magical event set under the rainforest canopy. Closer to town, the Sugar Wharf and Rex Smeal Park offer relaxed, yet sophisticated offsite venue options for an unforgettable waterfront function.
With the Great Barrier Reef at your doorstep, there are plenty of activities to choose from. A quick high-speed catamaran ride or a leisurely sail to a secluded island is the perfect way to end a busy conference program. Head north and immerse yourself in the ancient secrets of the Daintree rainforest, discover Indigenous culture or zipline through the rainforest at Cape Tribulation.
