ONE WAY RENTALS: It is possible to hire a car from Cairns airport or Cairns City and leave it in Port Douglas or Brisbane and vice versa but not all companies offer this service. Car Rental Companies need to have offices in both areas.

All car hire companies offer a different service but in general all cars are airconditioned and automatic.

Port Douglas has a number of smaller car hire companies while Cape Tribulation and Mission Beach do not. Cairns has many car hire companies and sometimes people prefer to pick up a car in Cairns and drive themselves to Port Douglas. Airport transfers from Cairns Airport to Port Douglas are $30/adult and $20/child.

With so many great places to visit and the convenience of having your own wheels Port Douglas is an excellent base for exploring the region.

We have many local companies up here including older car hire right through to luxury vehicles and 21 seater coaches. Some companies have 6 seater station wagons and 10 seater vans for larger families and this often works out to be the best plan if you are considering cost and convenience. Or, let your hair down or put it up, and indulge with an open top convertible and enjoy the sunshine and vibe of the tropics.

Bicycle Hire
Port Douglas Australia is situated on a 6km long, mostly flat, peninsula ideal for getting around by bicycle. Bike hire is available for those wanting to explore the town by following the many cycle paths.

Car Hire

Campervans are a great option for anyone wanting to explore Queensland at their own pace. Campervan hire is available from Cairns with van parks in Port Douglas providing powered and inpowered sites.

PLEASE BE CAREFUL! Driving in North Queensland we sometimes come across people driving down the wrong side of the road as they forget which country they are in. It is best to always remember to Keep Left. At the roundabouts on the way up to Port Douglas remember to always give way to your right. These are very dangerous if you are not used to them and many people get this wrong.

WATCH OUT FOR WILDLIFE! If you are venturing out into the rainforest in the evening please be very careful as most of our rainforest animals are nocturnal and will be running around or even lying across the road. The lighting on country and rainforest roads is very limited and often it is very dark with no street lights except for your headlights. The cassowaries sometimes wander onto the road in the evenings. Please be aware and drive slowly if there is a sign advising you of cassowaries in the area. The sign is making sure all visitors understand to drive slowly as they are definitely here. Cassowaries are very commonly seen on the roads in Cape Tribulation and Mission Beach as well as the Kuranda range road. Sometimes we even see them during the day.

You will also notice that Kangaroos often jump out onto the road in the sunset hours and just on dusk so be careful with these as well as livestock if you are in country areas.

When it rains in North Queensland all of the frogs decide to jump across the road. They have a springy loose legs relatively high and wide jump. We love frogs so please be a little careful. Cane Toads have a heavy jump. Don't worry if you hit a few of the Cane Toads. They are a pest.
