You can either hire a car or there are shuttles

Depending on where you are staying and what you plan to do in PD a hire car can be the most cost effective.

If you are planning on doing tours then one of the shuttle companies would suit

I've used Exemplar because they run on a meet the flight schedule rather than set times.. they are around $40pp each way

We used Exemplar too, and they were very good.

It depends what time you are due to arrive; if it is after dark I would definitely use a company. The road to Port Douglas is pretty, but winding and unlit. We were warned of the possibility of wildlife on the roads after dark, so we decided to let someone local do the driving! I think I would have been happy to drive during daylight hours, as long as I had not just come off a long haul flight.
