Comet Car Hire Port Douglas, Port Douglas Car Hire, Car Rental Port Douglas, Port Douglas Car Rental, Car Hire Port Douglas Specials Or Cheap Car Hire Port Douglas we are the best and can beet any price in Port Douglas Overall Australia is an easy destination to get around. There is a significant airline, train, and highway network, with tons of efficient public transportation, and a variety of Port Douglas car hire options as well. Keep in mind that Australia is a really big nation, if you are enjoying two weeks here, and aim to see all the attractions, you might be able to see them all but it will be from the small windows of planes, trains, and automobiles. Also remember that in remote regions the roadways may be extremely rugged.
Reaching Australia and the Port Douglas region Most notable airlines fly to Australia, the majority of them landing in Sydney, and a handful of airlines flying in straight to Cairns. Check with your travel agent or online company for the flight ticket you’ll need. In the event that you land in Sydney I recommend that you travel to Port Douglas via Cairns, the gateway town to the Great Barrier Reef. Presently both Qantas and Virgin Blue serve Cairns, with a third airline company (Australian Airlines) due to start air travel to Cairns very soon. It is an easy three-hour flight from Sydney to Cairns. Getting from the Airport to your lodging This is an easy endeavor. A lot of lodgings run their own service bus, and will certainly pick you up at the airport. Cairns features an excellent taxi service, and AUD$ 10 will likely get you from the airport to where you are staying. Port Douglas is 40 minutes north of the airport, but there are several transfer operators that can transfer you, with a regular round trip toll of AUD$ 55. Most people will hire a car to Port Douglas, which is worth every bit of the nominal price. Navigating Port Douglas and the Northern Beaches No matter where you end up staying in the Cairns-Port Douglas region, you will normally be inside walking distance to your basic needs. Most neighborhoods have a collection of small specialty shops. Nearly all dive trip operators will collect you from your lodging, and take you back once the dive is over, both as an included service or for a modest charge. Even though you’re in walking distance to most places, car hiring in Port Douglas is very common. Most people will hire a car so that they aren’t confined to a small area or to escape paying fees every time they use a shuttle bus. Cairns is a much larger city than Port Douglas and the Northern Beaches. The Northern Beach towns and Port Douglas are smaller, and walking will generally get you anywhere in town you want to go. Port Douglas is No. 3 on Australian Traveller magazine's lineup of 100 Best Towns in Australia. On the Queen's birthday weekend I went to Port Douglas with my sweetheart-- we booked a package deal holiday-- something I've not seriously done before-- the package part, not the holiday. It seemed to cover exactly what we required; flights, lodging, flight transfers, morning meal included and a cocktail on arrival. However handing over your travel plans to someone else can be risky, and we won't be doing it again for a long time! We were jammed into tiny seats on an one of the cheaper airline (my partner is 6'3), ended up wasting valuable hours waiting on the transfer shuttle, and also got hit up for $90 for not having booked any checked in baggage (to be honest my boyfriend thinks that might have been his mistake though). Port Douglas boasts a temperate climate with warm and comfortable summers and warm winter seasons, with substantial rainfall mainly taking place January through March. It is a great location from which to explore the northerly Rainforests of Cape Tribulation and the Daintree, as well as for trips out to the Great Barrier Reef. Four Mile Beach is the main beach near the coastline of Port Douglas. A short walk to the south is the large Sheraton Mirage Resort which was financed by Christopher Skase who developed the facility and then left the country leaving behind over one billion dollars of unpaid debts. At the peak of the port is Trinity Bay, which you are able to get wonderful views across from the top of Flagstaff Hill Lookout. Also on the peak is Anzac Park, where currently there is a great Sunday Market. There is also a pier on the western side of the park where you will find the fascinating Ben Cropp's Shipwreck Museum. Another exceptional spot to visit is the Rainforest Habitat which is an artificial rain-forest. Other tourist attractions around Port Douglas consist of diving courses, which are the ideal introduction to a trip out to the reef and the exquisite islands around Port Douglas. You can even participate in tours to the magnificent rainforests of Cape Tribulation within the awesome Daintree National Park. The primary stores and eateries around Port Douglas are mainly settled along Warner Street. Accommodation can be discovered all around town, you simply have to decide which area of town you want to be near. There is a wide array of accommodation including apartment and resort style accommodation, hotels, motels and hostel accommodation. You can conveniently get to Port Douglas both by coach, car hire or alternatively take a sailboat between Cairns and Port Douglas. It is highly recommended that you locate a 3/11 Warner Street, Port Douglas Car Hire company to help you rent a vehicle. They will be able to advise you on the best vehicles for getting around in the areas you plan to visit. Plus, you can always negotiate deals with Port Douglas Comet Car Hire companies.
