An audit report released by the Australian Government on tourism from Cairns to Townsville has shown Port Douglas in a very favourable light.
An exert from the report finds:
“Port Douglas presents a very different tourist proposition to the other areas considered in this audit. It is the most successful destination in the study in appealing to the ‘Stylish Traveller’ and the town is clearly foremost about tourism. At the same time, the majority of Port Douglas’s development has not detracted from a sense of North Queensland character. Port Douglas is arguably the most successful destination in this study for appealing to international visitors for its destination value, rather than as primarily a base to explore the reef and rainforest. There is a clear need is to protect and build on its existing successes.”
