Marae B&B near Port Douglas

Marae B&B is a luxury guest house set in tropical rainforest close to the Great Barrier Reef.

The accommodation comprises is two double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. This striking timber house sits on three acres with a spectacular backdrop of mountains and the majestic Mossman Gorge, just five kilometres away.

It is private and secluded yet only minutes away from the quiet Mossman suger cane town and the tropical resort of Port Douglas. And it’s a birdwatcher’s paradise.

In the living area large wooden shutters open to the valley’s breezes and you can take your breakfast on the sunny balcony looking up at the hills.

Nightly rates are AUD 235 per double and AUD 180 single. Prices include, of course, a delicious tropical breakfast. There is a minimum stay of 2 nights and you’d need a car. Marae is not suitable for young children.
