    Getting there

    By air - fly into Cairns International Airport then a 1 hour journey by limousine, hire car or shuttlebus (1.1/2 hrs). Transfers can be arranged by the hotel on request. It is also possible to take a train journey from Brisbane over three days.

    All tours collect from the hotel and shops and restaurants are only 10 minutes walk, so a car is not necessary unless you wish to explore the Tablelands or other spots independently.

    Car can be hired from Cairns airport, or locally for a few days as needed. Shuttle bus does a circuit of the town every 15 minutes ... good just to do a circuit and see the rest of Port Douglas.
