Woke to the sun rising over the water, beautiful. Had brekkie and went straight to beach. The butterflies everywhere and spotted two beautiful birds, one was an azure kingfisher and the other looked like a finch of some sort, yellow as. Stunning. But had along beak. May be honey eater. Walked up to the path to the river, great some lovely places to fish and a lot of the water draining away from all the pathways. Kaplonk Head back to camp, Matt grabs some fishing gear ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Central Plaza Port Douglas
Cannot recommend Central Plaza Resort highly enough. Stayed for 4 nights in June 2006, wished we could have stayed longer, immaculately presented, modern, lots of extras at very reasonable price - approximately £70 (English Pounds per night). We had a 2 bedroom apartment even though only 2 of us, with huge spa bath in 1 bathroom and large walk in shower in 2nd bedroom. Fully fitted very modern kitchen with full oven, microwave,dishwasher etc. Fully air conditioned, easy to use washer and dryer and even an airer to get clothes dry after a day in the rainforest, Owners very knowledgeable for advising about tours and local info, if it wasnt for them we would have missed Great Barrier Reef as weather was not going to be too good for next few days and they advised to take trip asap. We went with Haba, not too large boat, very attentive crew and Reef just amazing do not miss it!
Just returned from a holiday in Australia & stayed at the CENTRAL PLAZA for 6 days, we were extremely happy with the standard of the accomodation - the apartment was very clean and well presented, the bathrooms in particular were immaculate
Central Plaza was a great value in Port Douglas! We stayed in a two bedroom apartment for two nights and were very pleased. The W/D was a great addition and even had a laundry basket and drying rack. The apartments were clean and modern. The showers had very strong pressure, even if the heads were too positioned too low. The hotel is located about 7 minutes walk from the main street in town.
The only minor problem were small ants coming in the bathroom from the window.
It is not a 5 star resort but a very pleasant small hotel and we would stay here again. The owners were very helpful and provided good advice. When one of the owners suggested we stay in Port Douglas a third night and skip Cairns we should have listened as it is a dump!
Best place I have ever stayed on holiday!
I had an excellent 3 nights here in March 2006. The room was ready when I arrived around 10am (checkin was 2pm). I had a one bedroom apartment. It was spotlessly clean with wonderful facilities. The kitchen had an oven, dishwasher, large fridge freezer etc. The room comes with a laundry including washing machine and dryer which was handy halfway through my holiday. The bedroom was comfortable and included 2 bathrooms - one with spa bath, the other with shower. The owners were friendly and helped with a trip booking. Rate was $125 per night. The pool is quite large but I did not use it. The hotel location is quite good - about 10 mins walk to marina or Macrossan street.
One of the best places I have been to on holiday - I would highly recommend it and would go back.
Just spent 5 days in Port Douglas with my family and having travelled extensively throughout QLD and in particular the North of the state I found the Central Plaza Port Douglas as one of the nicest family accomodation we have stayed in.
We stayed in Port Douglas for around 10 nights mid february and I'm so glad we chose the Central Plaza. We had not booked anywhere and arrived in PD looking for a place to stay, and we were recommended this place by a local tourist office. The rate they gave us was $135 per night, which, for the quality of this place, was just brilliant value.
We picked Centra Plaza from the reviews on the web. Not only was the price reasonable but the reviews here were fully met.
Great Choice - Central Plaza
Stayed for four nights early November. Fantastic apartment really pleased with our choice. Fully fitted kitchen, laundry facilities, dining & lounge area, two bedrooms each with bathroom/shower and large balcony. The whole apartment was spotless and on arrival lights and air conditioning were on making the apartment very welcoming. Would certainly stay again if ever we got back to Port Douglas.
We stayed in a 3 BR at Central Plaza in Oct 2005 and agree with the previous review that it was a great place to stay in PD. The place was very clean and comfortable - and we didn't see a single bug, a fear of mine in the tropics! The facilities were also great and well maintained. The tennis courts are across the street and shared with other hotels. We grilled out by the pool while the children had an evening swim several nights. The "playground" was really just a sandpit by the pool.
