Things To Do In Cairns + Port Douglas With The Family


This is a bit of a wrap-up post after our very successful holiday in Cairns and Port Douglas.

I went with my four kids, Teen17, Teen 14 (at the time) and my boy/girl twins who are 8.

No husband/dad… just the five of us. Quite a challenge, but Cairns and Port Douglas rose to the task admirably.
