What travelers say:

The Captain Cook Highway is a very important road. The highway is quite fun and has many views to enjoy. This road structure is also very special. Many of the scenery is artificial and you can see along the coastline. To many things, the highway area is also very long.

Additional Information


The Captain Cook Highway from Cairns to Port Douglas is a beautiful highway with a special landscape and one of the most beautiful highways in Australia. After passing Palm Cove, the greenery on the left gradually turned thicker. The northeast coast of Queensland, where Cairns is located, is a humid tropical area and a precious tropical rainforest registered as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It is also the habitat of plants, virgin forests and rivers, precious marsupials, crocodiles, birds, butterflies and other animals that retain their original features. The blue sea on the right is part of the Great Barrier Reef. Because it is the largest coral reef area in the world and the habitat of most endangered species, it is also registered as a World Heritage Site. Driving on this highway, you can enjoy two world heritage sites at the same time.
