... know a poem about mud.
Mud! Mud! Glorious mud!
There's nothing quite like it for cooling the blood!
Follow me, follow me down to the hollow, and there we shall wallow
in glorious mud!!!!!!!!!
Franz and Marlee joined us at dinner. They own the cattle station and they have a son called Franzi and another son who was away at school. Franz helped us plan what we were going to do each day.
Next day, we had a day out on the cattle ...
... will be back at some stage. Even though the Big 4 is out of town, they do run a shuttle bus into town if you want to have a few drinks with dinner (we didn’t catch it..James drove for about the second time since we have been married…he only has 5 years of being pregnant and breastfeeding to make up for!). We had a lovely day topped off with a lovely dinner so we went off to bed looking forward to spending some time in Cairns from ...

The Discovery Centre was very well put together with an audio guide and various information plaques which guided you through the forest on special boardwalks. There was also a viewing tower which allowed you to see the rain forest at various levels and a 'professor' who was available for a short talk and to answer any questions. We also got the chance to see a life ...
... to the Port Douglas turn off) and again the drive was lovely. We did a quick stop at the Woolworths on the main road at Mossman (as suggested by the guy at Cape Trib camping). We then reached the Daintree ferry by 1.30pm to cross the Daintree River…another river full of croc’s (I think it was about $30 return). There were cars lined up either side waiting to cross on the barge so I jumped in the van and made a couple of breadrolls while ...

Arriving at Moreton at 11am and booked in and set up camp on the nice green grass. Sue and I did the two and a half k walk to Cave Creek and the Barra Hole.

Historical Traveler Reviews Nautilus Holiday Apartments Port Douglas
We wanted an affordable holiday & saw a 'special' price online. It worked out 5 adults (in our 40's, 50's) were able to stay 7 nights for only $25 each a night. Bargin! It was all so easy to book, & Ange & Matt the managers were so friendly, easygoing but professional. The rooms were spotless, very comfortable & not noisy even though they were on a main road, as they were set back a bit. We had a 3 bedroom room, which had it's own little laundry. (Were able to dry our beach towels off in the dryer). The hotel is in a great location only a five minute stroll to the beautiful 4 mile beach, and a 10-15 minute walk to the main shops. We all love walking so it was great. We were easily able to book all tours through the managers free of charge and they were just so helpful. We had hired a car which made travelling very easy but they had bikes for hire if you needed them. It was great to see them eating out locally as we knew then we were eating in the 'right' places....with the locals. The hotel pool was a little small but we only used it once as we were too busy & preferred to swim at the beach anyway.
We stayed at the Nautilus for 2 weeks in August 2006. The Managers are extremely helpful and very friendly. They gave us sound advice regarding tours and Port Douglas in general and booking tours was so easy as they can arrange them all for you. The apartments are clean, spacious, and the laundry room is a bonus ! We would love to stay there again and will recommend them to friends and family.
What a great place
I have just returned from my stay at the Nautilus Holiday Apartments and loved it. The couple that are in charge where wonderful to myself and my daughter and where very helpful to us. The tropical pool was lovely and a big hit with my daughter. The rooms are lovely and enjoyed very much staying there. I would recommend anyone to stay there and already thinking of another holiday there in the near future.
Nautilus now has new Managers
We recently stayed at Nautilus holiday apartments. It was just taken over on 1st July 2006 by a lovely young couple who are full of enthusiasium and advise. They recommended so many great places and were so friendly and helpful when it came to booking our tours. We also loved the fact we could book our tours at reception and just charge it to our room account.
We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment that was light and airy, fully self contained and having airconditioning in every room was great, there were also fans.
It was so convenient to have 2 bathrooms and a laundry to do some of our own washing.
The tropical pool was very nice and the use of the BBQ facilities proved to be very popular.
Could be better
We stayed at Nautilus for 6 nights in March in a 3 bedroom apartment. There was only one double bed. The other 2 rooms had single beds which didn't really work for our group of 3 couples, but would certainly work better for families. The apartment was well equipped but the air conditioner in our room didn't work and the walls in the lounge area were badly damaged with paint off everywhere. Also we found the management unfriendly. The pool was small but very nice, and the apartment was within easy walking distance to town.
Port Douglas was nice. Highly recommend a trip to the Low Isles with Quicksilver Wavedancer. Awesome staff, very professional and well worth the money!
I stayed here for 4 night in Feb and had a great time. Managers were very helpful and apartment was a very spacious 1 bedroom with tile floors. I paid 85 AUD from wotif.com and that is a very good price for what I got.
The apartment is located a 10 minute walk from town. There are a couple of restaurants and a convenience store 1 block away. There is also a local shuttle stop in front of the apartment.
I recommend this apartment and would stay here again.
Have just returned from spending a week at the Nautilus Appartments in Port Douglas.
The Nautilus is great
We stayed here for five nights at the end of December, and loved it, it is simply great value for money, the apartment was a pleasant surprise three bedrooms one ensuite, and very clean and spacious, with well equiped kitchen, would have loved to have been able to stay longer, the hotel booked all our trips which were excellent choices, the barrier reef an experience not to be missed.
We would definately return here, the pool is small but kept our twelve year old boy very happy.
Great location, fabulous hotel.
Second time around in this apartment "complex". We stayed at Nautilus in 2001 and decided to see if there would be availability again. Booked via the internet and were admittedly a bit aprehensive as to if the apartments would be still in the same shape as we found them 5 years ago. We were pleasantly surprised that the entire complex looks very well maintained and had not dated at all.
The Nautilis Holiday Apartments are great. My family of 4 were there for a week late February 2005. The accomodations were perfectly suited for us. We had a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom with in room laundry and full kitchen. The kitchen had all the needed utensils. The place was clean and new it was well decorated and very comfortable. The large BBQ was free to use as we pleased and is located near on the patio area at the well suited pool. The Apartment had free parking both garaged and un-covered. The resident management was extremly helpful during our stay, they booked all of our tours for us included our Avis discounts, shared there personal experiances and all free of charge.We were very happy with our stay at the Nautilis Holiday Apartments and all for about 600.00(aud) for the week. Port Douglas is a perfect location for reef trips, rainforest adventures and a beautiful hour drive to Cairns.
