Top 10 rainy day activities

Our beautiful tropics and Daintree Rainforest 🌴 would not exist without the rain, but we do understand it can seem a little inconvenient. At first.

Something different about when it rains in Port Douglas is instead of being cold and miserable, it’s hot & steamy and just radiates raw tropical nature! Also, our region is made for monsoonal rain so the water disperses very quickly, unlike our unfortunate NSW and Southern QLD friends, so you don’t need to worry about serious flooding.

To avoid feeling disappointed if it does rain, here are our 🌧 TOP 10 RAINY DAY ACTIVITIES just for you!

Have a beer and a bucket of prawns 🍺🦐 at the Tin Shed Port Douglas and watch the rain fall on the Coral Sea. ⁣⁣

An iconic location with a spectacular view, our local community & sports club is the perfect chilled out place to ‘ride out the storm’ and enjoy Mother Nature’s show.

Take a cooking class 🧑🏼‍🍳🥥 at Oaks Kitchen & Garden. ⁣⁣

Oaks Kitchen & Garden have created a space to not only teach you about the delights of Southeast Asian cooking but to showcase the abundance of produce that Queensland has to offer. Set in four acres of the lush natural surroundings of Oak Beach with a working garden that grows organic produce and a fresh outdoor cooking area to allow you to indulge in the surroundings.

Enjoy lunch in the rainforest 🌴 at Silky Oaks Lodge Restaurant.

Listen to not only the sound of the rain, but also the tranquil sound of the Mossman River flowing beside you. After lunch if the rain stops, or even if it doesn’t, take a stroll along the banks of the river in the lush rainforest.

Test your skills at the Port Douglas Escape Room. 🔑

Mani & Pedi 💅at Port Douglas Nail Spa on Grant Street.⁣

The perfect excuse to slip away for a peaceful mani & pedi. Let’s be honest, when the sun is shining it feels like a waste of glorious weather!

An afternoon cocktail or late nightcap 🥃 at Jimmy Rums cocktail bar.⁣
