... 50 caravans and motor homes already setting up for the night. We were told that at busy times there can be more than 100 vehicles parked here. It is a beaut bush setting with lots of shady trees and a number of fire places, not that they were needed tonight. After we set up we went for a walk back over the causeway to try to see the two fresh water crocodiles reputed to live here but there was no sign of them. They may have moved downstream to avoid being trapped as the river dries ...

There is nothing in it for Port Douglas at all. Had a nice look through the town and had an ice cream. BBQ dinner tonight. Rained overnight. Lots of bats ...

Raining in the rainforest

... in Australia we have found.
We saw a table nearby with a bottle of Vodka on their table. Kinda shook our heads thinking - Who does that? Went to get some water, and it comes in a Vodka bottle! So we had to have a shot of water together!
Funny enough we saw a program on tv that stated that Australia has a drinking problem and 1/3 drink to get drunk.
Can't wait to see this place in the daylight.

Cairns, Crystal Cascades and Catogery 5 Cyclone!!

... Rail for the long anticipated departure. Bad news...the cyclone has changed direction and the Sky Rail staff had decided given that it takes hours to pull each capsule in they needed to start now. Emergency buses were sent to take people down the hill. We were so disappointed but totally understand the safety issues.

At least we got to see Cascade Water Falls and swim in the cold pools. Lovely.

After a long debate and listening to ...

... about cyclones past, present and future although, apart from a bit of rain when we arrived, we haven't seen much evidence of them at all. Wusses the lot of them! We've loved it here but we are now looking forward to moving on to New Zealand tomorrow. PS. A cyclone is the same as a tornado but it spins in the opposite direction. Similar to water going down the plug hole. (No extra charge for this gem of ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Meridian Port Douglas

    Good location but would not go back

    from

    We booked a supeior studio for 6 nights at the end of July. Room was clean and a good size (nice touch to the room is the spa bath). The swimming pool is not extremely appealing and were not able to relax too much by the pool due to being next to the road (development of a new hotel nearby and noisy when cars were driving past etc..) so it was not total relaxation for us. The apartments are extremely well located and can walk into town in a couple of minutes. Our room was only cleaned once in 6 nights and you have to pay extra if you want to it cleaned daily. I thought the price was not great value for money especially as it did not include the daily cleaning service. I did not think the staff were very friendly especially the manager of the resort.

    Basic and convenient accomodation

    from

    The Meridian Apartments are convenient, close to the village centre of Port Douglas, which was great (within walking distance). But basically you get what you pay for, and this is definately on the cheaper side in Port Douglas, and the accomodation is therefore pretty basic. We were there for four nights and the room wasn't cleaned once (you had to pay extra for this service apparently). Our studio balcony was so small they don't even give you chairs to sit outside! I would recommend upgrading to a larger room if there is availability.

    Reasonably priced, comfortable accomodation

    from

    We chose The Meridian because of its good reviews here, and because of its no children policy.

    Wonderful property

    from

    We have stayed in Port Douglas on other occasions but have never found a place a well maintained and clean as The Meridian. All features of the property were perfect for the type of hoiday that we were looking for. It is close to the beach, restuarants and shops.

    The weather was perfect and we were able to visit the reef and the rainforest with wondeful help from the staff. Nothing was ever too much trouble for them.

    We would certainly recommend this property for any one who is looking for a relaxing and affordable play to stay in Port Douglas.

    Clean, relaxing, getaway

    from

    My husband and I stayed at the Meridian for 3 nights in April - after looking at several other hotels in the area, we are so glad we picked this place! The rooms are spotless, with all the amenities - coffee/tea and milk, tea kettle, dishes, great A/C (which is important in PD,) and best of all a private teak deck from which we could jump right into the pool! The location was perfect - there are several good restaurants within a 5-minute walk, and the staff was friendly and helpful. I would also recommend Micheal Angelo's and the Thai place on Macrossen for dinner, and Wavelength for snorkelling the reef!

    Great place to stay

    from

    My wife and I have returned from a stay of three weeks in Australia. The highlight of the trip was a 5-night stay in Port Douglas at the Meridian Apartments. The apartment we had was on the top floor, end unit. We had a spa on the balconey, a jetted bath tub, the building is only two years old and fitted with the most modern kitchen appliances, stove, dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave, etc. All the cutlery and crockery is spotless as is the unit itself. There is a washer and dryer installed in the bathroom as well. The pool area is very well designed and inviting.

    Excellent service and facility

    from

    My boyfriend and I stayed at the Meridian in port Douglas for two weeks.

    (I noticed that some of the hotels were not up to standard in the area.)

    However, Meridian was perfect!!

    The room was beautifuly set out and the pool was clean and divine.

    The hotel was also very convenient and close to the shops and the beach.

    Everyone at reception was so friendly and helpful.

    I would definitely go back again.

    Wonderful

    from

    Stayed here with my boyfriend over Christmas 2005. It was wonderful to say the least. First, it was very conveniently located - minutes to the main street (Port douglas is small so its best to stay in this area as opposed to further out places like the Radisson). Second, the apartment was spacious and very nice. We had one of the more expensive rooms where you have your own pool deck. This option totally made the vacation. We had the best Christmas day ever, all we did was sun ourselves, read, sleep and jump into the pool whenever we felt too hot (which was very frequent). We also had a little patio with a table and chairs that was sheltered.

    Luxury, privacy, with location.

    from

    The Meridian @ Pt Douglas is a new resort (2.5yrs) with great modern rooms, very private and quiet with excellent pool area and friendly service. Add to those a great location right near Macrossan St, 200m to the Beach and 500m to the Marina. Only potential negatives are children not allowed (positive for some!) and lack of bar/restaurant (but many are very close by). Would recommend to any couple (or group of couples) as a great place to stay in Port d.

    Perfect place to stay - The Meridan at Port Douglas

    from

    The Meridian at Port Douglas was a wonderful place for a holiday. The resort has a central lagoon style pool, the apartments are self-contained and very luxurious. It was close to everything Port Douglas had to offer.

    I will certainly be going back again.
