TravelPod Member ReviewsMartinique on Macrossan Port Douglas
What can I say...was supposed to stay a week and stayed 15 days. If you're looking for clinical large resort accommodation then this may not be for you but I am quite particular about the feel and cleanliness of a place, whilst wanting somewhere different. This was exactly what I was looking for. Right near the beach, owners are intelligent and friendly. Couldn't see any other accommodation I'd have preferred and took a cycle all round town!

Debby and Callam who we will be house sitting for in February kindly took us fishing on their boat out to the Reef and around Green Island. The day was stunning, no breeze and oh so tempting to jump over board into the crystal clear water, but it was stinger season and the thought of being stung by a box jelly fish or Irukandji stopped me from taking the dive. We caught a couple of coral trout and a little sun burn. Later that evening we had ...
Robyn drove us to the airport and we boarded our flight from Brisbane to Cairns. It was a two hour flight. Picked up our rental car and headed north to Port Douglas. Peter was very good at driving on the wrong side of the rood and I resumed my task of saying 'keep left' every time we made a turn. The biggest problem was turning on the windshield wipers just before we turned.
On route, we stopped at ...
... the most epic swim of his life." I have to say I was a bit jealous... The water looked so refreshing on such a hot day. Next we drove to Daintree Village, the region's first settlement, and had lunch along the river. I had read about taking a crocodile spotting boat tour and figured that might be kind of cool as I've only ever seen crocodiles in the zoo. But I figured it might be wise to first check with people getting off ...
... Beautiful countryside. Hard to believe we were in oz, it was more like England. We decided to go on the river boat trip to see if there actually were any crocs around. Just 5 mins into the trip we had sight of the first one. He was laid on the bank near a calf who had fallen down and was dangerously near the edge of the river. Thankfully Peter on board jumped off the boat and rescued the calf. Round of applause from all on board. The croc slipped back into the river...no tea for ...
