We can’t believe that yet another extraordinary year has nearly come and gone, but this can only mean one thing – the joy and excitement of the festive season is just around the corner!

If you haven’t already started thinking about what’s on the agenda for this Christmas Day, it’s time to get into some serious planning. To take the stress off your shoulders, our team has compiled this list so you know exactly how to spend X-mas in tropical Port Douglas.

A typical Christmas in Far North Queensland is full of tasty food, beautiful beaches and a whole lot of swimming. Oh, and the sun, a LOT of sun. Here are the some of the best ways to spend Chrissy this year!

Feast with a Christmas Lunch

Some would say a mouth-watering lunch is the most important part of Christmas Day! Port’s most iconic restaurants including Zinc, Salsa, 2 Fish and the Sheraton Mirage have opened their doors to celebrate with you this year. Get ready to indulge in delicious meals and a refreshing drink or two – bring on the food coma.

Hit the beach

Take advantage of the heat and head to Four Mile Beach for a day of fun in the sun! Play a game of cricket and get in quick to make use of the fantastic BBQ facilities – this way you won’t miss out on an awesome Chrissy lunch.

Visit the Great Barrier Reef

Plan a trip to the gorgeous Great Barrier Reef for a truly incredible celebration with friends and family. Jump on board with Quicksilver Cruises and snorkel or dive through the magical reefs all day long, and enjoy an impressive buffet lunch. What an experience!

Classic Aussie Christmas at Pool Resort

If you’re hoping to keep things simple this year, or maybe you’re travelling with kids, the accommodation at Pools Resort provides everything you’ll need for the big day. Stock up on some fresh local seafood for the perfect homemade feast, and then spend hours frolicking in the expansive lagoon pool.

That’s all from us for now, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
