Greeted with this kind of view every morning, why would I wanna be elsewhere?

Any advice on best bus to catch to go to Port Douglas for the day (from the hotel area, not airport)?
If you would like to arrange transport from our hotel to PD, here is the company providing you a day trip. You can book online now! Go "GLOBAL TRAVEL SERVICES" website then under "CAIRNS DAY TOURS" - Port Douglas Transfers (Sorry cannot include web link here) A$60.00pp so if you are not by yourself, Rent a car is cheaper. I hope this helps!
