Top 12 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Port Douglas, Australia - Updated 2024

airbnb Port-Douglas Australia
| 5 min read

Port Douglas is perhaps best known as the jump-off point for the Great Barrier Reef. While the world’s largest coral reef system is undeniably a must-visit while you’re in the area, it is far from the only thing this area has to offer to visitors. If you prefer water adventures closer to the shore, check out Four Mile Beach, a picturesque and family-friendly beach in the eastern part of Port Douglas. Also worth seeing is the Daintree Rainforest. It is the world’s oldest rainforest and Australia’s largest, and a wide range of flora and fauna consider it home.

If you’re in town over the weekend, Cotters Market, which takes place every Sunday and features scores of local art, is also not to be missed. Macrossan Street is also another option if you’re up for some shopping. These are only some of the things that await you in Port Douglas, so book one of top Airbnb vacation rentals in Port Douglas now.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) Superhost status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and amenities. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on April 05, 2024.
