Tickets to get in cost about $5 each and can be bought as you go in (show starts at 8pm) or purchased earlier in the day, which is the best option during peak times. There are usually 2 races - the first is a random draw of the entry tickets. If your number is called you are then assigned a toad. Runners include Fat Bastard, Gay Freddie, Pigeon Toad, Shagging Camel Toad, Aussie, Aussie, Aussie and all time favourite Jerry Springer. A quick kiss of the toad for luck and then the fun begins. As the toads are released encouragement is needed, so this is a great opportunity for the whole crowd to get involved with cheers and screams. For the second race the Toads are auctioned off. If you miss out in the first round, make sure you bid and buy one for the second round, and be prepared for lots of laughs

Lady Douglas is a beautiful riverboat that has been taking tours of the Dickson Inlet since 1989. Most Port Douglas locals know this as a gem of a cruise, and many visitors have been coming back for over 25 years! If you're not a hardy sailor then this calm water cruise is an ideal option. taking in the wilderness and scenery of the mangroves, and the coastal and harbour views around the inlet entrance. Lady Douglas has 4 scheduled cruises that depart daily from the Port Douglas Marina. The 1.5hr relaxing cruise travels up the Dickson Inlet in search of wild crocodiles other wildlife in their natural habitat. Enjoy an informative and entertaining commentary by the skipper, accompanied by a cool drink and snacks onboard.

Much loved by both kids and adults, it's a great experience for any age. The breakfast is buffet style with loads of hot/cold food options to chose from and unlimited tea and coffee. The attraction itself is a immersion exhibit, meaning that it is an open environment where guests and animals are free to mingle in a natural setting. So whilst enjoying breakfast you will be entertained as birds fly and roam freely. There are also photo opportunities to hold a parrot or lorikeet. The park has some lovely open space and grounds where you can hand feed the kangaroos and wallabies. The elevated walkways are great for seeing all the birdlife in just about as close to natural surroundings as you can get. Informative free guided tours are available throughout the day, providing a learning experience about pythons, koalas and crocodiles. For a close encounter there is the opportunity to purchase a souvenier photo holding one of these captivating creatures! Locals tip: Don't forget to purchase a $2 bag of roo food, makes great photo opportunities and the ducks love it too

The Bally Hooley Steam Railway is a small passenger train that operates between the Marina Mirage, Sheraton Country Club and St.Crispins Station. This gorgeous little steam train was originally owned and operated by the Mossman Sugar Mill, used for hauling sugar cane from the fields to the region's mill. Today the railway is operated by a dedicated small group of passionate volunteers. Running every Sunday, the journey takes a bit under one hour for the return trip from the Marina Mirage Station. Tickets can be purchased on the train, and all moneys collected go towards the cost of coal, insurance and maintenance. St.Crispins Station is the final stop where everyone hops off and has the opportunity to watch the drivers push the engine around on a large historic turntable, to reconnect with the train for the return journey. St. Crispins is located right alongside a tidal lake and sometimes a couple of resident crocodiles can be seen. Locals Tip: This is great little trip to do with the kids. Operating on a Sunday which is also the day the markets are on, so it makes for a good day out
