Getting to Port Douglas

Given that the weather was still quite nippy in Melbourne, Port Douglas was a fantastic getaway to the north.  Queensland was beautiful, and very warm! Given our tight budget, we left for the airport at around midnight to catch our 1:40 am flight.


We landed in Cairns at 4:40 am, where we slept in the airport for a few hours before catching a taxi into Cairns for breakfast. After breakfast, we caught a free shuttle up to Port Douglas.  The drive followed the breathtaking coastline pictured below.


After checking into our our hostel in Port Douglas, we explored the city, grabbed a jug (aka pitcher), and relaxed. It was great to take in the views and just chill when first arriving, because after that it was a pretty packed trip!
