Dougies is run by a bunch of us who had lots of fun backpacking around places of the world before, so we decided to start a hostel ourselves. We have the pretty relaxed atmosphere, without all of the formal procedures that some hostels have. Our philosophy is 'kick back and relax at Dougies'.

We have all of the facilities that a fun loving backpacker could ever need, including a bar, refreshing swimming pool, free bbq facilities, shop (coke, ice-creams, chockies etc), a huge self-cook kitchen, laundry, internet, satellite t.v (really big one), hire bikes, fishing rods, tour desk and of course accommodation (doubles, twins, share rooms, camping, van sites and our own stylish canvas tents).

But once you see our tropical gardens and cruisy front lawn you might just want to lay back and relax under a palm tree, kick back in a hammock, by the pool or you may even like to unwind on the grass and soak up some of the Far North's warm tropical sunlight.

Prices are per person per night.

We run a free bus (the eye-catching monkey bus) from Cairns to Port Douglas on Mondays, Wednesday and Saturdays. We pick you up from your hostel in Cairns between 10.30-11.00am on these mornings, but bookings are essential.
Alternatively, buses run regularly from Cairns and the airport to Port Douglas every few hours.
All of the bus companies stop at our front gate and tour companies can also drop you off if your coming from Cape Tribulation.

We are located on the left hand side, on the way into town so nice and easy to find.

Located Near

We are 55km from Cairns, about an hours drive along the beautiful windy coastal road.
Only a 20 minute drive away from the oldlest rainforest in the world and just a boat ride away from one of the Seven Nautral Wonders of the world, The Great Barrier Reef.

Q) How long does it take to get to Four Mile beach you ask?
A) About as long as it takes to eat an ice-cream.

Q) How long does it take to get to town?
