Port Douglas is on the east coast of Tropical North Queensland (TNQ) in Australia. It is about 3,000 kilometres (1,900 miles) north of Sydney and about 70 kilometres (45 miles) north of Cairns. Even though a long way north of Sydney, it is also still about 1,000 kilometres (600 miles) south of the northern most tip of Australia.
Our Latitude is 16 degrees, 29 minutes South and our longitude is 145 degrees, 28 minutes East. Therefore we are about 1,800 kilometres (1,100 miles) south of the Equator, 15 hours ahead of the east coast of the USA and 8 hours ahead of London. Queensland, and hence Port Douglas, does not have Daylight Savings.
The resort village of Port Douglas is at the end of a 2 kilometre (1.2 miles) wide, 6 kilometre (4 miles) long peninsula that runs north from the Captain Cook Highway (the main road from Cairns). It is bordered by Four Mile Beach to the east and Dickson Inlet (home of the Marina Mirage and the reef / fishing tour industry) to the west.
The peninsula is fully developed with resorts, shopping, restaurants, golf courses, tourist attractions and residential properties. Other than Island Point at the very northern end, the peninsula is totally flat and has lots of walking / cycling pathways.
The Villa is located approximately 4 kilometres (2.5 miles) from the main Port Douglas village, just off the main road into the centre of the village. It is in a quiet residential neighbourhood yet still very close to all facilities. It is just 500 metres from Four Mile Beach.
