A viewing platform that hovers over the Coral Sea will provide a breathtaking stop along the Flagstaff Hill Walking Trail in Port Douglas. Due for completion prior to Christmas, the trail will feature magnificent views of the Coral Sea and Low Isles, all the way to Snapper Island and the Daintree Rainforest. Linking Four Mile Beach with Rex Smeal park overlooking Dickson Inlet, the iconic walking track will provide several photograph hot spots for visitors, and showcase the unrivaled natural beauty of Port Douglas and beyond. 

The one kilometre track will provide a scenic link between Four Mile Beach and Rex Smeal Park, with Douglas Shire Councillors inspecting the $700,000 project this week. 

“I can see the Flagstaff Hill Walking Trail becoming a popular exercise route, or weekend walking track for locals who are spending a day at the Port Douglas markets,” Mayor Julia Leu said.

“This will add another dimension to the town’s lively buzz and attract people from surrounding areas like Cairns and the Tablelands.

“The trail boasts magnificent views of the Coral Sea and Low Isles, all the way to Snapper Island and the Daintree Rainforest.”
