The Flagstaff Hill Walking Trail provides spectacular views of the Coral Sea and Low Isles, all the way to Snapper Island and the Daintree Rainforest.

The  1.5km trail provides a link between Four Mile Beach and Rex Smeal Park in Port Douglas.

If you need a picture worth framing (or posting) look no further than the Flagstaff Hill Lookout. Located at the summit of Island Point Road, it is an easy walk, bike ride or even short drive to the lookout viewing area

From here you will witness sweeping, majestic views of Four Mile Beach and the rainforest-clad mountain ranges to the south. Venture along the Flagstaff Hill Walking Trail down to Four Mile Beach and walk the plank (or viewing platform) and take in the 180-degree views to the Coral Sea, Low Isles and Snapper Island to the north. Find the hidden Low Isles Lighthouse viewing platform located on the corner where Wharf and Island Point Roads meet.
