UPDATES for the Port Douglas & Daintree Discovery guide.

One of Sutromedia's best selling Apps.
In work at present is the Port Douglas Daintree Discovery Guide App updates.

Updates for this app are vital for our visitors because it works in Daintree which for the most part does not have mobile coverage.

Of great pleasure is being able to re-instate the Crossroads Cafe, add more birdwatching locations and to add the new web guide for cruise ship passengers.

It's Birdwatching Time in Port Douglas Daintree

Murphy Street Port Douglas

Despite the multi-million dollar holiday homes lining it's entire length Murphy Street in Port Douglas is one of the messiest streets in the shire. Always rubbish bins out, extensively potholed, no footpath, large real estate signs and holiday to-let signs litter the streetscape. But strangely it makes for a good walk with it's lovely tropical views and it's wildlife.

This morning I heard two sought after species, Lovely Fairy-wrens and Double-eyed Fig-Parrots along the eastern stretch. Sometimes there is a camp of Spectacled Flying-foxes set up on the high side although today they were found along Mudlo Street (opp #20) on the flat portion of town.

Murphy Street forms part of the Coastcare Walk around Port Douglas. 

Do the walk on your phone.

Good news for Port Douglas locals

Pacific Dawn

P&O have announced that they will start running cruises from Cairns starting in 2016. We and many of our friends like doing cruises, but living in Port Douglas you need to go to Brisbane, Sydney or Darwin to start your cruise. Travelling to those cities to catch a ship can be an expensive logistic nightmare which is something we will not have to do anymore.
Thank you P&O, this is very welcome news for locals and we are looking forward to it.
