About Dougies Backpackers Resort

Dougies is run by a bunch of us who had lots of fun backpacking around places of the world before, so we decided to start a hostel ourselves. We have the pretty relaxed atmosphere, without all of the formal procedures that some hostels have. Our philosophy is "kick back and relax at Dougies".

Frequently asked questions:
Q) How long does it take to get to Four Mile beach you ask?
A) About as long as it takes to eat an ice-cream.

Q) How long does it take to get to town?
A) It's about a kilometre so... time to scoff a sandwich and ice-cream.

But once you see our tropical gardens and cruisy front lawn you might just
want to lay back and relax under a palm tree, kick back in a hammock, by the pool or you may even like to unwind on the grass and soak up some of the Far North's warm tropical sunlight.

Location Information

Heading north from Cairns, its about an hours drive, you cruise along one of the most scenic roads in Australia, rainforest on one side, the Coral Sea and swanky beaches on the other. Port Douglas is a relaxed, sleepy little fishing village, with a number of classy resorts that have made it a world class holiday destination. With the town built along famous Four Mile Beach and the world heritage listed rainforests of the Daintree and Cape Tribulation National Parks not too far away, there's plenty of natural attractions to keep you busy.

When your not lounging on the beach there's loads to do with a couple of classic "aussie" pubs, shops and a marina full of boats to keep you entertained. You can take trips to the Low Isles (tropical islands just off the coast), the outer Great Barrier Reef, Mossman Gorge, Daintree and Cape Tribulation National Parks, otherwise you could try kite surfing, shopping at the Sunday Seaside Markets, have breakfast with the birds at the Rainforest Habitat or simply kick back and relax at Dougies around the pool, in a hammock or fall in love with the Dougies bar.
