Who hasn’t kissed a toad over the years? But these toads are way more entertaining. Daily at the Ironbar. Simply bid for your toad, give it a good luck kiss & race away.

HALF DAY REEF ADVENTURE - CALYPSO
The kids will sleep well at night with Calypso’s ½ day reef trips to the Low Isles. A 30min trip out on a glass bottom boat, including guided snorkeling tour & island walks.
Great for the littlies as they ride the Bally Hooley up to St Crispins. Have a bite to eat or snack at Choo Choo’s Café & ride the train back.
Windswell Rainforest SUP
Throw the kids on the board & paddle your way up the river.
They can run commentary from between your feet as you do all the hard yards paddling up the river.
A safe & great family trip that we can highly recommend.
Give your day a real uplift. Get sky high with a tandem parasail or go for a spin on a jetski across the sea. A truly epic day for the adventurous kids!

Hire a boat & fishing gear, grab a couple of snags to cook on the boat barbie, head up the inlet & try to catch yourself some dinner. Under supervision the kids can even drive the boat.
An iconic part of Port Douglas is the Sunday Market. Lots of fab food, fresh produce, art, jewellery, potions, things for kids. Worth a visit every time you’re in PD.
