Australia: Queensland’s beach, reef and rainforest bonanza

Day 6-9 Port Douglas
Reconnect and recharge at the pretty resort town of Port Douglas. You’ll feel the layers of stress peeling away as you make your way along its sleepy streets to the town’s Four Mile Beach, a strip of white sand so perfect you’ll never want to leave its palm fringed clutches.
