The apartment complex is only three stories high, with studio and one bedroom fully self-contained apartments. The apartments on the upper levels have generous balconies that are equipped with dining furniture and outdoor recliners. The ground floor apartments have direct access to the pools from the timber pool decks that extend from the ground floor apartments. Situated around the pool you will find little private spaces defined by the gorgeous tropical plantings. Pull up a recliner and relax with a book and a cool drink.


Make sure you stay for the Port Douglas Sunday Markets. It’s a lot of fun and you’ll get to experience a lot of local produce and street food that you’d otherwise be unlikely to get during the week. Start early because it get’s very hot out in the sun. By eleven o’clock the sun is high and so is the heat. Cool off with a pressed cane juice and lime drink. If you like coconut then the coconut shredding stall is a must see (and sample), yum. Wander the stalls and you’ll likely be able to stock up on some nice artisan breads, pastas and produce. There’s an vast array of clothing and and crafts stalls, and if you want your fortune read, the tarot card readers are there too. The frozen bananas on a stick are also a welcome refreshment. Check out the Sunday Markets, every Sunday at ANZAC Park.

Take a two hour guided walk around Port Douglas. Chris Dahlberg is a local who will take you around the most interesting places in Port Douglas with commentary covering nautical, historical, environmental and wildlife points of interest. Departs most days at nine o’clock, also at the ANZAC Park.
