What are the very best activities near Port Douglas?

My husband, 8 year old daughter and I will be in Port Douglas in September for a week. I have a very long list of things to see and do and must whittle down my list.

Can you give me your top 3 activities that an 8 year old would enjoy?

We have a limited budget and would like to be able to do some self guided tours. (We definitely want a 1 day reef tour. Low Isles?? )

Any suggestions of the "must sees" vs. what to avoid?

Why don't you give us your list, Judy, then we can help whittle for you. You may have some duplication there.

I really can't think of anything in area you should avoid, something your 8 yo would enjoy, (besides the reef) and if he or she's interested in wildlife would be Daintree Mangroves Wildlife Sanctuary, south of Daintree River, www.daintreewild.com.au

Think an 8 year old would really like the Daintree ARGO 8x8 Rainforest Tour. We did it in 2008 - it was a lot of fun. Fantastic views too.

Daintree's not that far from Port Douglas
